The same problem was solved for me by doing rpm --rebuilddb
though it is unusual since upto now I did not have to this.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-08-23 11:52:39 EDT
	rm /var/lib/rpm/__db*

This is now done at rpm startup as of rpm-4.0.3-0.88.
Comment 3 Ed McKenzie 2001-08-30 22:17:46 EDT
rpm still does the complete hang bit for me, and it seems to happen more often
after I've hit ^C to interrupt an install ... this is with .93
