Your rpm database has been corrupted. Make sure rpm isn't running and make a backup copy of /var/lib/rpm. then run the command "rpm --rebuilddb". That should fix it.

I can nor run rpm as root. Whatever command I try to execute it prints the same statement.
Rpm seems to work when I start the system in run level 1.
In run level 1 I executed this command and it finished without an error but as root, it still
gave the same error. This corruption of the database seem to occur even if I change desktops:
switching between kde and gnome. There is some fundamental issue with FC4 that is
causing this to occur.
Thanks for your suggestion
