    updating rpm database.


    All,

    I've a query regarding updating the RPM database.

    I've installed one application (of RPM format), so it has updated the RPM database
    with the details of this application. Now, I am replacing one of the file which was part
    of the application, by hand, with a new one. Now if I run the RPM verification (rpm -v),
    the verification will give error because of this new file.

    Is there a way I can update the RPM database for that application when I replace one or
    more of the files of that application manually to avoid rpm verification error ? (Those who
    are familiar with HP-UX, I am asking for something similar to "swmodify")

    Thanks,
    - Joby

    I'd like to know if that's possible as well (without writing a new program to manipulate the database).
