I did a routine apt-get upgrade today from testing. There were a ton
of updated packages including libc, rpm etc. However now when I try
to run aptitude it says loading cache and locks up. For kpackage it says
kpackage: error while loading shared libraries: librpmdb-4.0.3.so:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
So I'm guessing its the rpm upgrade that broke all that stuff..
Should I revert to an older version of rpm? How do I do this outside
I'm not seeing that error here.
I suspect that something didn't get updated properly. 'apt-cache show
kpackage' indicates a depends on librpm >= 4.0.3, while the new
librpm is version 4.0.4 which satisfies this.
Try 'apt-get check', which may indicate where the problem lies.
apt-get check returns no errors. I got kpackage to start by making
symlinks to the rpm libs. I had 4.0.4 and it was looking for 4.0.3.
However aptitude is still broken and I don't know if kpackage supports
downgrading versions of packages. I also wanted to go back to msttcore
1.0.1 because 1.1.0 screws up all my fonts. How can I do this from the
ok I fixed aptitude by reinstalling it.
