I accidentaly deleted /var/lib/rpm. (Don't ask.) I am trying to
rebuild the rpm database so, hopefully, rpm will function normally once
again. But I get this error:
root / >> rpm --rebuilddb
error: db4 error(16) from dbenv->remove: Device or resource busy
I'm at a loss. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
