Problem using "RPM" - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, I have a linux redhat 8 system. After using the "redhat-config-packages" to remove some software I can no longer use the "rpm" command. The "rpm" just hung. Any ideas how to fix this problem. Thanks. Shane...

    It may be fixable, depending of course on what software you removed.

    Have you done an "rpm --rebuild" yet, just to see if that helps things?

    This is a known issue with rpm that came with RHL 8.0.
    As root, remove the __db.* files in /var/lib/rpm/ and rebuild your rpm
    database using the command 'rpm --rebuildb'

    Go to your /var/lib/rpm directory and delete the __db.00* files.
    Then do a rpm --rebuilddb. That should take care of the problem.
