Note that you'll have rpmdb mismatches even when creating an EL5 chroot
on EL5, if you create an i386 chroot on an x86_64 host. Just that
difference is enough to cause rpmdb mismatches. A work around if you
must work within the chroot is to remove the db cache, rm
With F11, I have found that I also had to remove /var/lib/rpm/Packages
when doing anything in an EL5 chroot that mucks with the rpmdb. e.g.
Building ISOs with Revisor. (My Makefile also does '/bin/rpm
--rebuilddb' before executing Revisor)
