I am installing latest version provided by centos updates. i am using
rpm-build 22.214.171.124-20.el5_5.1 and db4 4.3.29-10.el5_5.2
well these are two packages from centos update tree, but still issue exists.
now i am not able to build package in case of any rpm query in build script.
kerneldir=/lib/modules/`rpm -q kernel | sed '$!d' | sed
above is shell script to find out installed kernel version in chroot, where
it throw following error
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Invalid argument (22)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
is there any way to solve this issue or how to find installed kernel version
in chroot ?

This is the all-important clue:
rpmdb: /var/lib/rpm/Providename: unsupported hash version: 9
You're apparently creating an image for an older distro on a newer one,
and the older RPM / Berkeley DB combo on the installed image doesn't
support the hash format of the newer BDB from the newer distro (on which
you created the image).
There's no general "easy" solution for it I'm afraid. If possible, use
older distro (of the same era as the one you're creating the image for) to
create the image. Another possibility might be downgrading the rpmdb
format with db_dump and db_load from suitably versioned db4-utils, but
that gets a bit tricky.
