Why is the computer against me

18 Jan 2005

Aargh!! I'm having one of those bad days...

As it is, I'm having major problems with SQL in my work and have a tough time with that ...

On an unrelated note, I am trying to install a package and rpm throws up with an error:

$ sudo rpm -qa
rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery
error: db4 error(-30978) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 -  (-30978)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
no packages

$ man rpm

$ sudo rpm --rebuilddb rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery error: db4 error(-30978) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery error: cannot open Packages index

And now all Yahoo sites are not opening in my browser - I've tried Konqueror as well. I've tried flushing the Firefox cache, restarted Firefox..... Nothing's working. Sigh.

Background music: 'In The End' by Linkin' Park:

What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn't even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn't even matter

Update : Even my net connection at home is down due to an incompetent cable-wallah. And of all the things, a reboot fixed the rpm problem!!

$ sudo rpm -qa
tzdata-2003d-2
ethtool-1.8-3.1
libstdc++-3.3.3-7

Hey Chakshu, welcome :) Feel free to hang around. It's a nice place, the only thing you'll miss is free beer ;)
