Description Tadej Janež 2007-01-12 16:34:58 UTC
Description of problem:
Today I ran the usual 'yum update' and yum aborted unexpectedly with several
rpmdb errors, rendering rpmdb unusable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-3.0.1-2.fc6
rpm-4.4.2-32
kernel-2.6.18-1.2868.fc6
kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6

How reproducible:
Don't know how to reproduce the original conditions that caused the first yum
traceback. Yum allways tracebacks from then now.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo yum update
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Yum tracebacks

Expected results:
FC6 system updates normally

Additional info:
Here is the output of the first yum run:
[tadej@tlinux-stable ~]$ sudo yum update
