Description of problem:
While updating my Red Hat 7.0 servers to ypserv-2.5-2.7x I get this error message:
[root@rpfirew i386]# rpm -Uvh ypserv-2.5-2.7x.i386.rpm 
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]

rpmdb: Suspiciously high nelem of 4294967295 on page 0
Fehler: db4 error(-30979) from db->verify: DB_VERIFY_BAD: Database verification
failed

This happens on all of my RedHat 7.0 servers but on no RedHat 7.2/7.3 server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update a RedHat 7.0 system to ypserv-2.5-2.7x
2. Look at the messages from rpm
3.

Also happens for me on Red Hat 7.1


Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2002-11-05 09:02:15 UTC
You need to do rpm --rebuilddb to fix this.
This is a known issue with upgrading the rpm in 7.0/1 i think. At least a lot of
people have seen this.

rpm --rebuilddb has indeed solved the problem for me.

Thanks.
