    Default Can't install software on 11.2M6

    I just installed openSUSE 11.2M6 on my MSI Wind. After installing from the liveCD, I added the Packman and Videolan repos, selected the GNOME Desktop and base dev installation pattern, chose to upgrade all packages, and ran the software installation. However, at around %80, the system froze up completely; no keyboard shortcuts would work, so I had to power off the machine. I rebooted and everything seems okay, but now I get the following error whenever I try to install or upgrade a software package:

    Does anybody know what went wrong here? Is there a way to fix this (or to run "database recovery"), or should I reinstall?

    Code:
    man rpm
    and search for "rebuild".

    Okay, apparently I just needed to rebuild the rpm database:

    Code:
    #rm -f /var/lib/rpm/_db*
    #rpm --rebuilddb
    It seems to be working fine now.
