Why is the computer against me

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
fedora-release-2-4
pcre-4.5-2
shadow-utils-4.0.3-21
zlib-1.2.1.1-2.1
grep-2.5.1-26
procps-3.2.0-1.1
dev-3.3.13-1

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