How can I repair this? I also agree to remove the whole repository

and start YaST Software Management or run 'zypper ref'

Could Anton merely have run, from a root console:

rpm rebuilddb

Wondering what alerted you to the fact that zypper was in use?

Just wondering


rpm --rebuild db did *not* clean up my system. Yast was showing 3 firefoxes
installed, any effort to remove them resulted in error messages, the dirs
were empty ( they wer not emptied manually by me), the db is still running
corrupt in my system and now i am running ff-3 from my home dir. It is a good
thing that ff does not really *install* anything, otherwise i would probable
have real trouble.
Any more drastic ways to rebuild the db? i even temporarily moved all the db
related files out of /var/lib/rpm and tried rebuilddb again, that did not
work either.

In my case "deleting /var/cache/zypp/zypp.db" saved the situation - I
have posted reply on this, but it has gone personally to Rajko - I
have forgotten to change the "To" field to "opensuse@xxxxxxxxxxxx"
