Re: Yum says package "ntp" is not available which is not true

It's good to know the database is not hosed when RPM is being weird.  I've
seen it limp along for quite a while, getting weirder and weirder.

Yes, that's exactly why I posted about the problem on this mailinglist. Right now it only seems to be a minor annoyance but I fear that it might lead to bigger problems down the road. Given that other users have reported similar problems on this list with other packages in the last couple of days and that according to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=250604 this problem doesn't seem to be confined to rawhide I think this looks like a bug in rpm. While I cannot say how serious this bug really is I tend to get a little nervous when it comes to creeping integrity problems of databases (rpm's or otherwise). Could this be a result of the latest rpm version update (which had a rather long changelog)?
