Why is the computer against me ?

Aargh!! I’m having one of those bad days…

As it is, I’m having major problems with SQL in my work and have a tough time with that …

On an unrelated note, I am trying to install a package and rpm throws up with an error:

$ sudo rpm -qa
rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery
error: db4 error(-30978) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 -  (-30978)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
no packages

$ man rpm

$ sudo rpm --rebuilddb
rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery
error: db4 error(-30978) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index

And now all Yahoo sites are not opening in my browser – I’ve tried Konqueror as well. I’ve tried flushing the Firefox cache, restarted Firefox….. Nothing’s working. Sigh.

Background music: ‘In The End’ by Linkin’ Park:

What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried
so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

Update : Even my net connection at home is down due to an incompetent cable-wallah.
And of all the things, a reboot fixed the rpm problem!!

$ sudo rpm -qa

ethtool-1.8-3.1
libstdc++-3.3.3-7
