rpm hangs upon using
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
When using ANY operation involving the rpm command (rpm, or apt-get), rpm hangs
giving this output:
rpmdb:unable to join environment
error:db4 error(11) from dbenv->open:resource temporarily unavailable (11)
error:cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
This happens when 4/5 rpm commands are issued.
Upon reboot rpm works, but breaks after a few usages: I tried to download all of
the 4.2-1 packages at rpm.org and I could install them after rebooting. Then I
tried rpm -qa to see if anything changed, but it hanged.
I rebooted another time and it worked for three rpm -qa | grep <name>, then
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.use the rpm command a few times (few lower than 10)
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
Does that fix?
I have tried it (i read the page on rpm.org) and this far everything looks good,
but I must say I didn't make an intensive use of RPM.
But I'm optimistic :-)
Thank you for now!
