Description Simon Matter 2002-08-12 15:19:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-6.2.16 i686)

Description of problem:
It is now several times that I couldn't do anything rpm related after issuing
some commands. Seems the database is not unlocked how it should.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q imap
2. rpm -e imap
3.
	

Actual Results:  Nothing happens. No prompt. Only kill -9 helps.

Expected Results:  imap should have been deleted.

Additional info:

When I experienced this the first time, I did a
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.00*
and everything is was again. It happened three times today while building RPMs.
Looks like there is a locking problem somewhere.

Yup, fixed in rpm-4.1 from Raw Hide.
