Description Amoor Avakian 2003-03-09 17:38:15 EST
Description of problem:

I had RH 8, then i upgraded to Phoebe, the rpm database started to give
problems, i had to follow the instructions on this website :
http://www.rpm.org/hintskinks/repairdb/ but that did not work as when i ran "rpm
--rebuilddb" command i got this error :

error: db4 error(11) from dbenv->open: Resource temporarily unavailable

The same error is thrown by Ximian Red-Carpet AFTER the upgrade to Phoebe,
before it worked fine.  Thanks.

rpm-4.2 uses posix mutexes for locking, so you need to
remove the database environment
    rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*

Red Carpet uses librpm404, which does not use posix mutexes,
so you are going to have interoperability problems until
Red Carpet starts to use rpm-4.1 or later.
