When trying to use yum, I get the following error:
rpmdb: Lock table is out of available locker entries
rpmdb: Unknown locker ID: 705
error: db4 error(22) from db->close: Invalid argument
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Cannot allocate memory (12)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
I googled the lock table issue and what was suggested is several was several entries in DB_CONFIG. They are:
The databases themselves are in /var/lib/rpm and doing an strace, that does appear to be where yum and rpm look for that file. So I created it (there was no default DB_CONFIG) and added just those three lines. The problem is that it doesn't fix the problem.
This appears to be a problem only with my FC7 systems -- FC6s are working fine. Has anybody seen this same problem and what was required to fix it.
