Description Benjamin Reed 2003-04-01 21:02:25 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm getting errors from RPM whenever I do something like installing RPMs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --rebuilddb
Actual results:
[root@linux-ben root]# rpm --rebuilddb
error: db4 error(16) from dbenv->remove: Device or resource busy

Expected results:
No errors.  =D

Additional info:
I found some references on the RPM list that this is harmless, but anything that
spits out an error related to my RPM database scares me.  Is there something
that would cause this?  I've just done a clean install and I've barely installed
anything yet.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-04-02 23:57:45 UTC
Yes, it's harmless. There's an out of order attempt
to remove the environment, fails just like
    rmdir /
fails, because the dbenv is still in use.

There's another bug here someplace to get this really fixed,
so I'm gonna close this bug.
