As i mentioned in "YUM and RPM dose not do any thing!", i have the same problem with rpm.
And nothing happened

[root@armansoft ~]#  rpm -Uvh yum-3.2.29-22.el6.centos.noarch.rpm

Try the following commands and reply (via attachment) the strace files in /tmp. There are a couple of common shared dependencies in each app.

Quote:
strace -o /tmp/yum.strace yum list
strace -o /tmp/rpm.strace rpm -qa

before you do that, try this.

Quote:
tar cvf /tmp/rpmdb.tar /var/lib/rpm/__db.00*
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.00*
rpm -qa

Can you run other commands?

Does the terminal behave normally except for this command?

can you check the state of your /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc file.

also, what is the contents of /root/.rpmrc ?

A question???

Why are you even trying to back up the rpm database when the program "rpm" is not working ??
if it is not working you can NOT update the rpm database

IF yum and rpm ever worked ( i do not know if they ever did )

if they DID in the past work then you did "something" most likely installed something that was VERY incompatible
( rpmforge and random rpms from the net can do this )

if they NEVER worked
something is VERY VERY WRONG with the install
and the TWO programs needed to fix it are NOT WORKING


i would reinstall with CentOS 6.3
seeing as you would have HAD to upgrade cent anyway , with 6.2 now past it's END OF LIFE

one thing you can try is this
but it is NOT going to fix it
Code:
strace rpm
you "should get a very long output
at the beginning though will be something that looks like this
Code:
execve("/bin/rpm", ["rpm"], [/* 97 vars */]) = 0
brk(0)                                  = 0x604000
mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x????c????000
if there is then it is installed but broken

Since the yum.log suggests this was working a week ago, did you manage to clean the yum cache as a last action? The reason I ask is, it looks like ( from the strace log) that rpm never even gets to those dirs.

Yeah, I'd upgrade as suggested above.
