Description of problem:
redhat-config-packages occasionally hangs when installing new packages.
It just stops installing and hangs, becoming unresponsive.

The only way to close it is with xkill, and you'll need to manually deleted the
locked .db files in /var/lib/rpm in order to get it functioning again.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download any RPM package or add/remove packages in the manager itself.
2.Install it under X with the graphical rpm package manager.
3.Sometimes it will just hang for no apparent reason.

Actual Results:  The application sometimes hangs.

Expected Results:  It completes the installation procedure.

Additional info: None.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-09 20:43:05 EST
This is probably related to the rhn applet checking the rpmdb during the package
installation and should be fixed with the rawhide versions where everything is
using the same version and will work with concurrent db access.
