Rpms will not install or uninstall


Hello

Recently when I tried to install a program with yast I clicked onto the add or remove programs and the window crashed. To investigate this I started yast in console mode and did the same. This produced this error

quote:sbin/yast: line 184: 2049 Segmentation fault

and then the program crashed. I have no idea how to even approach solving this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If there is no way to solve this could someone tell me how I could reinstall linux keeping my files and windows partition.

You might need to rebuild/repair your rpm database...

Check out this site:
