Creating Rpm database

   Iam having the following problem:
   #rpm -qa gave the following output

error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - No such file or directory (2)

   Then I did the following:

   #mkdir /var/lib/rpm
   #rpm --initdb
   # ls -la /var/lib/rpm
total 24
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         4096 May  4 08:58 .
drwxr-xr-x   25 root     root         4096 May  4 08:57 ..
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        24576 May  4 08:57 Packages

   When I execute "rpm -qa" I get no output.Iam missing a lot of information
in rpm directory.
   How can I recreate it? I donot know how I lost the whole directory and
the contents?
   Iam missing rpmpkgs file also.

   Thanks in advance,
