I did the:
[root@localhost ~]# rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.* <Enter>
[root@localhost ~]#rpm -vv --rebuilddb <Enter>
The response is :
Synaptic still Hangs..
Any other ways?
Just to clarify, when a command is executed without errors, there will be no response, unless the command, by it's nature, asks for one. (fdisk -l
for instance) Only errors
will give a response otherwise.
Assuming that the two commands have executed correctly, from their lack of error messages, we have to assume there is more involved than a database corruption. As root
, try to reinstall Synaptic with the commands;[root@localhost ~]# apt-get check
<Enter>[root@localhost ~]# apt-get install --reinstall synaptic
If you get error messages from either of these commands, post the exact
error messages. They usually have meaning that gives a clue as to what the next action should be.
