Description of problem:
As I am using rpm to install additional packages rpm will hang after trying to
install a number of time (anywhere from 5 to 10).
The install gets to 100% on the # marks but hangs before returning to the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install multiple rpm packages using rpm -Uvh package-name.rpm
2. rpm hangs befroe returning to the command line
3. kill rpm and try to rpm --rebuilddb which also hangs
I do use USB mass storage. 2 units
I have had a filesystem issue following using these units twice now.
fsck was able to fix the problems but some files were affected. I have reloaded
the affected files and everything seems to be OK.
I am not sure if this has impacted rpm at all.
I have since reloaded rpm by installing the rpm again over the existing package.
This has not helped with this issue.
Basically I either have a problem with USB storage, rpm or both.
My rpm problem seems to be reasonably reproducable at the moment so I thought I
would file a bug.

Hmmm, you appear to be killing rpm prematurely
on upgrade, this is bugzilla #73200.
If you do kill rpm with -9, you will have to do
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
That should remedy the subsequent hangs.
