Description of problem:
get transcode-0.6.2.20021021 tarball from here:
rpmbuild -ta --rebuild --target=athlon transcode....
Then install the binary:
rpm -Uvh transcode....
The last command does not return the prompt in xterm. I tried to kill the rpm
process, but it does not respond; i didn't tried a -9 yet.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.install (-U) the binary
Actual Results: rpm command is frozen
Expected Results: rpm should upgrade the package
Ok, i "kill -9"'ed rpm, run a "rpm -qa | grep transcode", and sure thing, there
were two versions installed.
I removed dvd::rip first (it depends on transcode), then did a "rpm -ev
Then i attempted again to install my newly built package. It worked. I
reinstalled dvd::rip afterwards... Nothing suspicious so far.
But i wonder if my RPM database is still healthy. :-(
Doing --rebuilddb with rpm-4.1 guarantees (by checking signatures
and digests of headers, and rebuilding all other indices)
a "healthy" database, for some pretty meaningful definition
