Anyone see any issues with libguestfs and yum working weirdly??
If I mount an disk image with guestfish and try to install new packages
with yum, it gives rpmdb errors. However if I "launch" the disk images
as a guest in a fill virt container like qemu, there are no rpmdb error
and I can install new packages with yum....
Also, if I remove the rpmdb and rebuild via guestfish, then yum seems to
be working fine....
command "rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.004"
command "rpm --rebuilddb"
Then yum seems to work:
command "yum install vim-enhanced"
It looks like yum is still using something outside of guestfish, anyone
have any comments/ideas on this??
