Re: [FC4]: both RPM and YUM crash with errors on FC4 after upgrade.

hi Ian,

You didn't want to do "-i".  That installs the new version without removing the
old one.  You almost certainly now have two rpm packages installed.  If you
could do "rpm -q" you would see them.
I did, and I just had the new version on there. I did a "-i" to reinstall
the new version.
My guess is that there is a version mismatch between rpm and berkeley db,
probably because of old versions.  It is  suspicious that it is trying to use
db3 since FC4 only used db 4.3 and doesn't even have db3 available.
Yep, so I removed the old db files.

Reinstalling the whole OS is probably the best option.  You may also be able to
upgrade from the CDs.
Or, removing the old db files and doing an

rpm --rebuilddb

Try seeing what /lib/libdb*, /usr/lib/librpm*, /usr/bin/rpm exist.  Try moving
the old versions out of the way and see if that fixes the problem.  Try moving
the new versions out of the way and see if that fixes the problem.  If you do
get rpm working, remove the duplicate packages.
It now works. Thanks!
