Description Aleksey Nogin 2002-11-13 04:43:22 EST
Shouldn't "rpm -e --justdb ..." just work on the db and not look around in the fs?

Strace shows a lot of stat64 calls - both on files belonging to packages being
erased from the db and on files belonging to packages that are being kept.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-11-15 13:21:14 EST
stat64's are needed for fingerprint calculation,
necessary to compute filestate tag before adding
to the database (even with --justdb).

> ... before adding to the database ...

But that's my point - I was not *adding* anything - this was a -e!
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2003-12-27 16:12:11 EST
stats are needed for fingerprints on erase too.
