    Errors from yum: error: db4 error(-30977) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal

    Please see http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showth...189#post759189.

    Can someone help me install kdevelop? As per the above link, I tried yum clean all (see below) only to get more errors.

    Thanks,
    Siegfried
