    Red Hat 8.0 equivalent command


    n Red Hat 7.1 the command "rpm --rebuild <source_file_name.rpm>" is valid. What is the equivalent in Red Hat 8.0? Responders should be advised that the command "rpm --rebuilddb <source_file_name.rpm>" produces the following error message in run levels 1 & 5.

    error: db4 error(16) from dbenv->remove: Device or resource busy

    Two years later and I am still fighting the Soltek/nVidia I/O problem.

    Problem Solved!!!

    With the help of my son, we determined that the proper command is:

    rpmbuild --rebuild <packagename>.rpm

    Worked fine and I am now online with the Linux boot after almost two frustrating years.
