Yup, I really do. I have a screwed up rpm database. No backup's either.

I tried to upgrade rpm-3.0.6-6x to rpm-4.0.2-5x, and this screwed up the database.

Any way to recover????? I've been looking for help all over, but did'nt find one.

A redhat upgrade is really bugging... really lots of dependencies and relates stuff.


Some one please help. I need to get the rpm database up.

Reinstall

Learn how to keep version's from conflicting.

Nothing will help but a reinstall.
