Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

"probably 5.1 or so) That somehow had a corrupted database, and I couldn't find a fix for it for the life of me.... once I had that happen with Debian, but it was easy to fix the problem."

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm -vv --rebuilddb

Those two commands would do it on Fedora, likely works on mandrake too?
