RPMDB(8) System Manager's Manual RPMDB(8)

NAME

rpmdb - RPM Database Tool

SYNOPSIS

rpm {--initdb|--rebuilddb}
 

DESCRIPTION

The general form of an rpm rebuild database command is
rpm {--initdb|--rebuilddb} [-v] [--dbpath DIRECTORY ] [--root DIRECTORY]
 
Use --initdb to create a new database if one doesn't already exist (existing database is not overwritten), use --rebuilddb to rebuild the database indices from the installed package headers.

SEE ALSO

popt(3),
rpm(8),
rpmkeys(8),
rpmsign(8),
rpm2cpio(8),
rpmbuild(8),
rpmspec(8),
 
rpm --help - as rpm supports customizing the options via popt aliases it's impossible to guarantee that what's described in the manual matches what's available.
