Re: Whoa, rpm died overnight.



Craig White already posted a solution to this sorry :

# rm -fr /var/lib/rpm/*db*
# rpm --rebuilddb

Wouldn't mind knowing why it died however.

Any idea why this would die ?

rpm -q works, anything else fails like this.

[me host ~]$ sudo rpm --rebuilddb
rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery
error: db4 error(-30978) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index
[me host ~]$ rpm -v
RPM version 4.3.1


[me host ~]$ rpm -q db4
db4-4.2.52-3.1

Try with verbose :

$ sudo rpm --rebuilddb -vv
