2.6 broke up2date
i'm running redhat9 under 2.6.3, but updating to the new kernel seems to have broken up2date (along w/ a bunch of other stuff). ran in terminal, it returns the following:

rpmdb: unable to join the environment
error: db4 error(11) from dbenv->open: Resource temporarily unavailable
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Resource temporarily unavailable (11)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 993, in ?
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 601, in main
ret = sanityChecks(fromDaemon, hasGui)
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 272, in sanityChecks
if cfg["useGPG"] and gpgUtils.checkGPGInstallation() == 2:
File "", line 33, in checkGPGInstallation
File "", line 71, in findKey
File "", line 111, in installedHeadersNameVersion
TypeError: rpmdb open failed

i tried doing a rpm --rebuilddb, but that didn't work.

any ideas?

thanx :D

up2date --version makes a gui window pop up w/ the following info:

I've got 4.3.11, However i don't have the same release version as you so I guess you should check the rhn site to see.

You may also want to try to uninstall and reinstall it.
