corrupted RPM DB during kickstart install



Hi folks.

I'm working on an install that's using a kickstart file.  Everything has been fine, but recently, during the install, the RPM database is getting corrupted while installing packages.

>From the chroot'ed "/root/install.log" file, i see:

...
Installing gdb-6.0post-0.20031117.6.i386.
Installing dialog-0.9b-20020814.6.i386.

error: db4 error(-30982) from db->sync: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: db4 error(-30982) from db->sync: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
...

  
At this point, no other packages install. 

This is completely reproducible, the install log is identical on two different machines.

I've google'd around and all references about this problem say to "rebuild your RPM db using "rpm --rebuilddb".  However, in this case, that doesn't work since i'm in kickstart.

Does anyone have any ideas about what to do? 

Thanks.
