rpmdb


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.

       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.
