Description Martin gagné 2003-04-09 23:53:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
I'm using Redhat 8.0 on many servers. Often on many of them, when using the 
rpm -Uhv command to install packages, often from redhat updates of redhat 8.0 
distribution, rpm is freezing and i have to kill it with kill -9. After, i 
cannot install any rpm without rebooting. i tried to run rpm --rebuildb but 
nothing, i have to reboot.

I have a friend at gleveque@mag-datacom.ca that is experiencing the same 
probleme with differents servers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.1-1.06

How reproducible:
Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install rpm packages
2. rpm freeze, have to kill
3. have to reboot to use rpm again
    

Actual Results:  Rpm is working, but have to reboot

Expected Results:  Use rpm without rebooting

I've got the same problem it only happened very recently so I assume the problem
has to do with some update I recently added to the system.
