First I'm going to verify your RPM database.  Pre-existing problems 
with your database could cause the Ximian Installer to fail, possibly 
leading to system corruption.  This should only take a few seconds.

I've detected a possible problem with your RPM database.  I'm going to
try and repair the database, using the `rpm' command.  This may take a
few minutes to complete.  I'm also going to keep a full log of
everything I do in /var/cache/redcarpet/rpm-rebuild.log.

If you'd rather examine the database yourself, please press Control-C;
otherwise, just hit ENTER.

I was unable to repair your RPM database; please examine

For further assistance, please contact <distribution@ximian.com>.

Cleaning up temporary files... done.
