rpm -e .. death of rpm tool
when I rpm -e some_package (e.g mc)
rpm removes it.
and does not exit.
after that if i run redhat-config-packages
it endlessly "processes headers"
I tried rpm --rebuilddb with no luck.
By the way -- is there something like drak-rpm -- a tool to list packages, show files and dependencies?
Also -- why mc that come with distro can not extraxt files from rpm files? it only shows sripts..
try rebuilding the database this way
1. Goto /var/lib/rpm
2. rm __db.*
3. rpm -i-nitdb
4. rpm --rebuilddb
5. donīt worry about error message in the end
I hope this solves your prob
thanks, it worked -- and even without error messages :)
