    Urpmi Ack!!!!!

    rpmdb: Page 7966: first page in overflow chain has a prev_pgno 7967
    rpmdb: Page 7966: overflow page linked twice from leaf or data page
    rpmdb: /var/lib/rpm/Packages: DB_VERIFY_BAD: Database verification failed
    error: db4 error(-30972) from db->verify: DB_VERIFY_BAD: Database verification failed
    I have no idea what this means but it sounds bad. Is there any way I can fix it?

    I haven't seen that before! It might be worth rebuilding your database with:

    rpm --rebuilddb

    You'll need to be root.
