rm -f /var/lib/__db*; rpm --rebuilddb did not do the trick.

Does anyone know of a good way to build a fc3 guest in an fc4 host?

rm -f /var/lib/__db*; rpm --rebuilddb should fix it, I think.

I think changing /etc/rpm/platform is the only way to fix that,
alternatively removing it and then using setarch i386 should work.
