After few hours my rpmdb is corrupted and I need to execute db_recover -h
It seems "createrepo" (0.9.8-5.el6) doesn't release the locks correctly
everytime. (/usr/lib/rpm/rpmdb_stat -CA)
Does someone already ran into this issue before I investigate more ?
What kind of errors you're getting from rpmdb? Nearly all the issues
reported as "rpmdb corruption" are something else, such as unclean
shutdown from either a crash or getting forcefully killed while inside
Berkeley DB calls. Which does prevent rpmdb opens until dealt with
(db_recover being one possibility), but it isn't corruption per-se.
