Re : FC4: unable to initialize mutex: Function not implemented



Dan

I am experiencing the same problem, on different machines (AMD/Intel). Have
just started to dig in to this.

[root toy ntfs]# rpm -q kernel-module-ntfs
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
package kernel-module-ntfs is not installed
[root toy ntfs]# rpm -Uvh
kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp-2.1.22-0.rr.6.0.i686.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
rpmdb: unable to initialize mutex: Function not implemented

This more or less applies to all rpm-related queries and updates etc. Also :
when not logged in as root then database queries (rpm -q ...) do get
results. But upgrading as non-root is not permitted so its not much of a
help. The usual remedie "rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.*" followed by an "rpm -vv
--rebuilddb" or "rpm --initdb" does not work because it encounters the same
problem.
