      From which version? The formay of the rpm database has changed several
      times.

      If you have already purged your old rpm database, you might as well use
      'rpm --initdb'. Note that any package you'll try to install will
      complain about not having dependencies.

      You could try getting copies of rpms that must have been installd in the
      system (from a CD you might have or from ftp.redhat.com) and install
      them with --justdb . But this involves a huge ammount of work.

      BTW: get yourself a statically linked busybox binary:
      http://packages.debian.org/unstable/shells/busybox-static . (debs can be
      extracted with ar and tar, you know).
