Description of problem:
Attemting to install apt-0.5.5cnc3-fr2.i386.rpm hung rpm. Remebering quirks with
the previuos version I deleted the __db* files in /var/lib/rpm and then tried to
kill it. This is backwards though :-).
Anyway even a kill -9 will not make it die :-(.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.freshrpms.net download apt-0.5.5cnc3-fr2.i386.rpm
2. rpm -ivh apt-0.5.5cnc3-fr2.i386.rpm
Actual Results: rpm hangs
Expected Results: apt installs
[root@nitremb22 rpm]# rpm -qa | grep rpm
FWIW, you're running on a buggy development version of
rpm that is not yet released.
What glibc and kernel packages?
If kill -9 does not terminate, you're blocked in
the kernel somehow.
If "kill -9" diesn't, this is probably a futex
implementation problem. Try upgrading the kernel
and glibc, as there are quite a few changes there
over the last two weeks.
