I have managed to confuse yum & rpm. I installed a package using one of the tools, and then ran a bundled script which did an uninstall.
Now both yum and rpm, think the package is installed. when I do a uninstall, both think the package is not installed.
What magic file can I edit to make the packages uninstalled, so that I can do a install?
on install rpm reports:
rpm -i VMware-workstation-5.0.0-13124.i386.rpm
package VMwareWorkstation-5.0.0-13124 is already installed
on erase rpm reports:
rpm -e VMware-workstation-5.0.0-13124.i386.rpm
error: package VMware-workstation-5.0.0-13124.i386.rpm is not installed
