Ctrl+C nor kill nor killall rpm. Eventually a server reboot is
required to kill the process.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual Results: RPm hung, and would not die in response to all kill
Expected Results: RPM should have finished or died.
I'm running RedHat EL3 AS on a Compaq Proliant 850R. Everything else
runs at the speed of light.
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
and repeat the command.
Does that fix?
RPM had become corrupt, so I reinstalled it with the Install Disks.
Now it works fine.
