Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120496
can't "rpm -Uvh --test" as non-superuser
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:05:47 EDT
I upgraded to rpm-4.3.1-0.1 yesterday. Now when I run "rpm -Uvh
--test *.rpm" as myself rather than root, I get "error: can't create
transaction lock". This is new, and in my opinion incorrect,
behavior. I shouldn't need a transaction lock to perform a read-only
operation, and testing an upgrade should always be read-only.
