yum has lost it, rpms db is now corrupted.




a recent large update has gone badly wrong,
(the screen went into graphics mode, fixed by 'reset' cmd)
and now I get this on a re-invoke sanity test.


[jimc harpo ~]$ sudo yum shell

[jimc harpo ~]$ man rpm

rebuilding the db didnt help..

[jimc harpo ~]$ sudo rpm --rebuilddb
rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery
error: db4 error(-30977) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 -  (-30977)
[jimc harpo ~]$

using --initdb didnt work either.

Oddly, basic rpm querying works..

[jimc harpo ~]$ rpm -q yum
yum-3.0.1-2.fc6


Any suggestions ?
