Description of problem:
cron.daily rpm task, rpm -qa "package", yum search package, yum install
something, all these commands hang. No error messages. they just get stuck
there. Control-C also doesn't work.

We need to o a kill -9 to get rid of the process

I just checked it on my PC. newly installed with additional repos enabled. I
have also installed livna release rpm. No updates done after that.

Once you kill any rpm-related process with kill -9, you'll need to clean up
rpmdb locks manually to resume normal functionality: rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__*

closing as this seems to be a workaround.
