Description of problem:
Probably duplicate of the closed bug (#50933). When uninstalling e few rpms
"rpm -e file.rpm" simply hangs. I will attach straces shortly.
rpm version : rpm-4.0.3-1.03
System had quite a lot installations/deinstallations/rebuildings of
After an "rpm --rebuilddb" the hang disappears
It all happens quite sporadically so I am not able to reproduce it often
(happened only on installing or erasing)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e bonobo-conf bonobo-conf-devel evolution
2. (program never ends)
Actual Results: rpm hangs
Expected Results: Finish the install/deletion :)
Created attachment 33538 [details]
Gzip of the strace on the rpm command that hung
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
should fix it.
This problem appears solved.
