Description bobvm 1999-08-31 02:18:09 UTC
After upgrading to the latest rpm (3.0.2) from your Support
list, glint does not work.  Also, the X-Windows Package
Management tool (which envokes glint) does not work.
Executing glint from the command line results in the
following messages:
  bad option 'macrofiles' at /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc:256
  Glint Graphical Package Manager -- version 2.6.2

  Traceback (innermost last):
    File "./", line 49, in ?
      installedPackageSet = InstalledPackageSet()
    File "./", line 133, in __init__
      self.db = RPMDatabase(prefix)
    File "./", line 61, in __init__
    File "./", line 26, in OpenDatabase
    File "./", line 41, in reopen
      self.db = rpm.opendb()
  rpm.error: cannot open database in /var/lib/rpm

I downloaded the rpm and rpm-devel RPMs from the errata
list, and did a "rpm --rebuilddb".  Problem persists.
