Reiserfs vs rpm wierdness

  Anytime I try to install an rpm, or even run "rpm -qa" 2.5.70, and RH
9. I get the following error.

error: db4 error(22) from dbenv->open: Invalid argument
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Invalid argument (22)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
no packages

  If I reboot into redhat's 2.4.20-9 rpm works fine. As far as I can
tell there doesn't appear to be any file system corruption.

There is no such thing as obsolete hardware.
Merely hardware that other people don't want.
