Yum Oopsie

I just did a yum update, but much to my surprise, it stopped after verifying 34 of 79 of the updates.

Then I got the message: "Rpmdb changed underneath us" followed by the root user prompt. I did a yum clean all, but no more updates are to be had.

I'm not sure what this means, or if it's safe to re-boot in this state. Is there any info on this?

Thanks

I bit the bullet, backed up everything quickly and rebooted with no obvious problems.

The good news is that I'm ready to restore all my data in next week's F17 debut.

I still have no idea what the RPM database change warning was all about.

Re: Post #1.. FYI:
Had almost exactly the same message:

Code:
.
.
Verifying  : 1:libreoffice-math-3.4.5.2-15.fc16.i686                    34/93 
Verifying  : 1:kmod-nvidia-3.3.6-3.fc16.i686.PAE-295.53-1.fc16.i686     35/93 

Rpmdb changed underneath us
[prompt@prompt /]#
But, everything else seems to be OK.. Will re-boot, and report back if any problems.

Re: Yum Oopsie

Very strange...
There are some "coincidences" here.
First, i did a :

# yum update akmod-nvid\*

followed by

# yum update libreoffice\*

and got that same message. Libreoffice did not updated that time.
Humpf ! I said. Then, decided yumming other things. The first one warned me that rpmdb was changed outside yum,
but finished ok. Subsequent yum's just gone like expected. After all, i returned to libreoffice stuff and it was updated
correctly.
Just a "inoffensive" bug here ?

Re: Yum Oopsie

That's is just an unfortunate side effect of the akmod-* packages. For example, akmod-nvidia-295.53 will compile and install kmod-nvidia-kernel_ver-295.53 RPM packages in the background as soon as it is updated. If there are a lot of packages being updated, the installation of the kmod-nvidia-* package will likely cause the problem.

Assuming I'm correct, updating akmod-* separately will prevent the errors

Although you updated akmod-nvid* first, the build process explained above probably didn't finish yet. You can check with:

Code:
ps aux | grep -e akmod | grep -v grep

You was like a sherlock (the HOLMES) !
Case closed.
Next time, akmod-nvidia goes to the end of list.
