im currently doing my own distribution, it's somewhat LFS, for my company's
special needs. I had not yet the time to migrate to RPM 5, so I plan to
stick with 4.4.6 for the time beeing.
So, I've started the system with a boot CD, installed everything via
rpm2cpio at first until I got a basic system. I re-mounted /proc, /dev
and /sys and chroot()ed to my new installation to set up the RPM database.
When running "rpm --initdb", nothing happens and the directory stays
empty. "rpm -qa" of course then shows an error message: "Cannot open
packages database in /var/lib/rpm".
Running "rpm --initdb -vv" shows the following: "D: dbiOpen: _dbiapi
failed"; same error message when I run "rpm -qa -vv".
I've no clue what RPM tries to tell me with that. :-( Needed libraries (db,
sqlite, neon, ...) are installed, ldconfig runs without problems, and any
other program does not complain. I could even compile and install a kernel.
Can you give my any pointers on where to search?
Thanks alot in advance.
