NAME

rpmdb - RPM Database Tool

CONTENTS

Synopsis

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

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.
