spurious errors from RPM on a clean RH9 install
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:52:40 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm getting errors from RPM whenever I do something like installing RPMs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --rebuilddb
[root@linux-ben root]# rpm --rebuilddb
error: db4 error(16) from dbenv->remove: Device or resource busy
No errors. =D
I found some references on the RPM list that this is harmless, but anything that
spits out an error related to my RPM database scares me. Is there something
that would cause this? I've just done a clean install and I've barely installed
Yes, it's harmless. There's an out of order attempt
to remove the environment, fails just like
fails, because the dbenv is still in use.
There's another bug here someplace to get this really fixed,
so I'm gonna close this bug.
