Description of problem:
rpm -Uvh --root /mnt/sysimage --force /path/to/some/rpm
error: can't create transaction lock on /var/li/rpm/__db.000
Happened with rawhide-20050510.
Is this new? We haven't ever created the dir before. It's possible rpm has
stopped doing so.
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received the feedback we
requested, we will assume the problem was not reproduceable or has been fixed in
a later update for this product. If you have further details, feel free to
reopen the report with the additional details attached.
