hello ppl, 

 i wanted ot upgrade from RH7.2 to RH9 today, but this was failing because it 
seems my rpm database is corrupted or somthing. ( invalid hash ) 

so now i am planning ot install over my root fs of the original RH7.2

thankfully i have /home on a different partition and i have copied /etc and 
/usr/src ( carious kernel sources ) there. 

so the question is can i just "chown" over my home after reinstalling the new 
RH9 fs. or is there anything else. i have ot look out for ?? 

thanks for reading 


Let me put it this way: today is going to be a learning experience.
