The rpm db has corrupted
ls -l /var/lib/rpm/__db*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root       0 2007-04-07 17:01 /var/lib/rpm/__db.000
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   24576 2007-04-07 16:48 /var/lib/rpm/__db.001
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1318912 2007-04-07 16:48 /var/lib/rpm/__db.002
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  450560 2007-04-07 16:48 /var/lib/rpm/__db.003

Happens during update of nfs-utils

Update details
nfs-utils - 1:1.0.12-4.fc7.i386 updates nfs-utils - 1:1.0.12-3.fc7.i386

The Following get added
Adding for dependencies:
libtirpc-0.1.7-5.fc7
rpcbind-0.1.4-2.fc7

Other info
[root@localhost mnt]# rpm -qa | grep rpc
[root@localhost mnt]# rpm -qa | grep glibc-common
glibc-common-2.5.90-19
glibc-common-2.5.90-20

workaround 
don't install nfsutils

workaround to repair db
#rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
#rpm --rebuilddb

Check for glibc installation
[root@localhost mnt]# rpm -qa | grep glibc | sort
glibc-2.5.90-19
glibc-2.5.90-20
glibc-common-2.5.90-19

glibc-devel-2.5.90-19
glibc-devel-2.5.90-20
glibc-headers-2.5.90-19
glibc-headers-2.5.90-20


Get rid of the old glibc directories
[root@localhost mnt]# rpm -e glibc-devel-2.5.90-19
[root@localhost mnt]# rpm -e glibc-headers-2.5.90-19
[root@localhost mnt]# rpm -e glibc-2.5.90-19

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2007-08-13 12:59:27 UTC
Fixed since rpm >= 4.4.2.1-1 in rawhide and soon F7 + FC6, python processes
tracebacking while accessing rpmdb no longer leave stale locks (and other
corruption) behind.
