zypper dup or up has a problem. Encluded is the error.
Downloading RC1 files

This time it locked up during a zypper up that removed librpm-0.4.4
before replacing it. So now it fails period. RPM fails, yast2 and
zypper all fail. I even found a version on the DVD but it fails also
What are you doing? How exactly are you updating from where to where?

Long explantion of the cause!

Well something I did to RC1 caused me to reload. So, I found a openSySE 11.2 beta 6 which I reloaded, Prior to that I saved a bunch (from RC1) of thing including my updated /etc/zypp directory. I was thinking that I could just upgrade using "zypper up".
It worked. I called up X and started firefox and X locked up - no exit from X and num lock LED was on steady. The only way out was reboot and after it fscked. That is where the RPM DB was set wrong. zypper was in the middle of downloading and I could not get out of X. Inow have a k3b made DVD with RC1 which I will load tonight. No upgrade just a verified DVD
