Re: Up2date crash



The other thing to try is to go to /var/lib/rpm and delete the __db* files:

cd /var/lib/rpm
rm __db*


Then try the up2date again.

Hi Jeff,
As instructed, delete all the rpm files in the /var/spool/up2date folder and reboot the server to normal and oce again try the up2date -u command for a complete update......

Reboot to single user mode, look to see if /var/spool/up2date is full. Try 'df -h' or 'du -h /var/spool/'. Find the full directory,
clean it out and reboot to normal. You should be able to
save this from a full install.

Look here for howto on booting to single user. http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.3-Manual/custom

Hey all,

Running RHES3 and did an up2date. The / partition was full and because of this up2date crashed during the install phase.

Now the server won't boot correctly, I've lost X windows

and have to

boot to runlevel 3. Non of my daemons start automatically

so I have

to run /etc/init/network and every thing else in

/etc/init.d/ manually

to get things going.

If I run up2date -u again, I get the following.

[root mis02tc07927 root]# up2date -u

raise up2dateErrors.RpmError(
up2date_client.up2dateErrors.RpmError: RPM error. The

message was:
Could not determine what version of Red Hat Linux you are

running. If

you get this error, try running

rpm --rebuilddb

Although running rpm --rebuilddb does't help.

Any ideas how I can unscrew this without a total re-install?

Thanks,

Jeff

No need for single user mode, I can get logged in running RL3.

The full directory was /mnt/USBDrive. The problem was the was no external USB drive mounted and a backup script ran. This filled up /

That's since been cleaned out.

[root mis02tc07927 up2date]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda7 11G 252M 9.9G 3% /

/dev/sda6 79G 35G 40G 47% /var


That being said, /var/spool/up2date contains a lot of rpm files. Should I delete these?
