Description of problem:
The dreaded hang is back.
rpm -q always return nothing on first attempt after a boot.
rpm -e fails, kill -9 and removing __db*'s not making a difference.
rpm --rebuilddb fails
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot Fedora with kernel 2.4.22-1.2088.nptl
2. Open terminal, rpm -q
3. rpm -e
Actual Results: Doesn't query on first attempt, erase not working and rebuilddb
Expected Results: rpm -q works on first attempt, erase doesn't hang, rebuilddb
It seems work ok when erasing single packages, but multiple packages kill it
almost every time. Then after a while I can erase two packages, but then rpm -q
will fail again. I have yet to succesfully erase three packages with this
futex(0x403a8fb0, FUTEX_WAIT, 0, NULL
Hope this is helpful.
I need more details to even attempt a guess. AFAIK rpm is
doing the same job as always for thousands of people.
So what's different about your box?
After having filesystem issues and fsck'ing it, this problem has not been
happening anymore. Vlose this baby out, and I will make a note to myself to stay
away from the 2.6.0-test.X kernels :-)
