rpm --rebuild nukes database !!!!!
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
"rpm --rebuild" gives the following output:
temporary database /var/lib/rpm already exists
error creating directory /var/lib/rpm: File exists
And then continues, this results in the database being rebuild on top of
the exisisting one, resulting in a double database. rpm -q foo gives 2x
foo, and rpm -e foo says that foo desribes multiple packages ;|
I had to re install to get things fixed ;|
This is a severe bug!!
