Description Tom Riddle 2003-02-27 16:53:46 EST
Description of problem:
Performed an install from CD using anaconda.  Selected Custom/Everything,
everything else left as default.  Installed packages ok, rebooted, registered
for rhn from within firstboot, changed up2date config to remove kernel* from and
add kde-i18n-* to skiplist, ran up2date.  It downloaded rpms ok, but hung on
installing first package (WindowMaker). By hung, I mean the window stopped
refreshing.  I telnet'ed in from another machine and discovered a couple of
curious things:

- the size of my RPM database was huge: Packages file was ~40Mb, Basename was
~10Mb, whereas on another identical install these files as ~16Mb and ~2.7Mb
- strace of the up2date process revealed that it was looping in:
select(0,NULL,NULL,NULL,{1,0}) = Timeout
- attempts to use rpm command resulted in the same strace
