    Default software management failing with _get: DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found

    Hi
    I just reinstalled opensuse 11.4 on a lenovo ideapad. The install went well and afterwards I was installing other packages. In the midst of this I started getting a error both from the gui software management package and zypper.(I tried zypper to see what would happen). I thought at first a simple refresh of the repos or a reboot would probably solve this but it did not.
    All attempts to do any software manage failsnow.
    The basic error is ( tail of a long list from zypper)
    error: error(-30987) getting "" records from Requireversion index
    error: db3 error(-30987) from dbcursor->c_get: DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found
    error: error(-30987) getting "" records from Requireversion index
    error: db3 error(-30987) from dbcursor->c_get: DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found
    error: error(-30987) getting "" records from Provideversion index
    from a zypper update and something about the same from the gui.
    How can I solve this? Thanks

    This can happen if an install is interrupted mid-way. I can't explain all the possible scenarios easily, but I'm glad such tools exist for recovery. These links may increase your understanding.
