No rpm, no sound, no zip, and no kdm image.



I installed FC4 a couple of days ago and I encountered a whole set of fundamental problems with it.
Wren I log-in in run-lever 3 to install NVidia drivers I lost rpm as a root.
When I run, for example, rpm -qa as a root or try to is install real player I get


[root zoran download]# rpm -ivh RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm
rpmdb: unable to initialize mutex: Function not implemented
rpmdb: /var/lib/rpm/__db.001: unable to initialize environment lock: Function not implemented
error: db4 error(38) from dbenv->open: Function not implemented
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Function not implemented (38)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm


Any ideas what is wrong?

Zip does not work. When I try to mount it the following happens:
Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: special device /dev/hdd4 does not exist

Actually /dev/hdd4 does exist but does not seem to be the right device.
Any ideas about this one?

Then when it comes to sound, I think alsa-kernel does not work well.
For snd-cs46xx, I get the following message when I try to play a wave file:

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Then the image for kdm that I choose does not show. The usual Bluecurve login display shows.
There were a few comments earlier in this list but none of the suggestions work.


The first 3 issues are quite fundamental that makes me think that RC1 is better suited for this release.
It has more problems than even FC1 when it came out.
I would be grateful to anyone that has suggestions about the list of problems above.
Thanks,
Zoran
