       rpmdb - RPM Database Tool

SYNOPSIS         top

       rpmdb {--initdb|--rebuilddb}

       rpmdb {--verifydb}

DESCRIPTION         top

       The general form of an rpmdb command is

       rpm {--initdb|--rebuilddb} [-v] [--dbpath DIRECTORY] [--root DI‐

       Use --initdb to create a new database if one doesn't already ex‐
       ist (existing database is not overwritten), use --rebuilddb to
       rebuild the database indices from the installed package headers.

       --verifydb performs a low-level integrity check on the database.

       --exportdb exports the database in header-list format, suitable
       for transfporting to another host or database type.

       --importdb imports a database from a header-list format as creat‐
       ed by --exportdb.
