Fedora Core Fedora Core 1 has been out now for a few days now and many faithful Linux fans have already installed it. Red Hat's Linux is still one of my favorite distributions because of one main reason: compatibility with Linux software. Red Hat is a market leader and following the market leader assures the least trouble for most users. But is this the case with Fedora Core?

# rm /var/lib/rpm/__db*
# rpm -q blahhhhhh (any text will do)
# chown rpm:rpm /var/lib/rpm/__db*

.. Not exactly user friendly, but it will save you a reboot.
