    Red Hat 8.0 equvalent 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.

    rebuild and rebuilddb are very different commands, are u saying neither of them works or is it a typo.

    u could try installing a new version of rpm. perhaps rh8 had a messed version.

    Problem solved yesterday evening.

    rpmbuild --rebuild nforce-10-262src.rpm

    That did the trick.

    --rebuilddb i actually rebuilding your whole rpm-database on package headers. That command should only be used on rpm-database failuers.

    The correct command was the above one.....
