NAME

       rpmdb - RPM Database Tool

SYNOPSIS

       rpm {--initdb|--rebuilddb}

DESCRIPTION

       The general form of an rpm rebuild database command is

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

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

       rpm  --help  - as rpm supports customizing the options via popt aliases it's impossible to
       guarantee that what's described in the manual matches what's available.
