Re: [vox-tech] Segmentation Fault with RPM --rebuilddb



I did try it.  No luck. *grumble*

Sorry to re-note this, but did you try the suggestion made by <i>Charles
Polisher</i> (One of the things I mentioned was a possible file system
problem with files, permissions, etc. A problem with these files could be
it. If this suggestion clobbers the old db files which will be created
again anyway, this may be the solution you were looking for.)

Instead of "rm" you may want to consider just "mv" the files to /tmp or
another location so as to no destroy them. Then you could mv them back and
not lose data.
