This is because you didn't format your root fs and there were stale rpm locks. 
We've worked around this in our current codebase, but you should really always
format / on installations.

so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
