Suse 9.3 update errors


Yast alerts me to new updates that are available. I can download and install all but three: glibc, rpm and java 1_4_2 sun, they will download and installation begins then at about 55%, I get an error message and have to skip installing them. Any ideas as to whats goin on ????

Here is a small portion of the error message: ( There is about four hundred lines like this,,, i'm not kidding ) ....

ERROR(InstTarget:E_RpmDB_subprocess_failed)

Maybe your rpm database is corrupt. Try a repair:

Don't forget to backup /var/lib/rpm first!

That's seems to have worked like a charm .

So login as root in a shell, then:
cd /var/lib
mv rpm rpm.old (to backup)
rpm rebuilddb

If all is working you might also do a:
rm -rf /var/lib/rpm.old (This wipes out the old dir).

Thanks for the solution!
