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):


How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.freshrpms.net download apt-0.5.5cnc3-fr2.i386.rpm
2. rpm -ivh apt-0.5.5cnc3-fr2.i386.rpm
3.
    

Actual Results:  rpm hangs

Expected Results:  apt installs

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-03-04 23:01:18 EST
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. 
Comment 2 Ted Kaczmarek 2003-03-05 06:42:48 EST
kernel-2.4.20-2.24
glibc-2.3.1-38
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2003-03-08 13:06:35 EST
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.

You might also try rpm-4.2-0.70 at
    ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test-4.2
