Description of problem:

After several days of regular operation, rpm now hangs when trying to
update/install any kind of package. The % Update List reads 100% installed.
After killing rpm process and releasing locks the package will not be
listed in rpm -qa.

Version-Release number:  Standard rpm package with Shrike.

How reproducible: Now at any rate. I also tried rpm -Uvvvh blah  and it
hangs at GZDIO:     250 reads,  2040148 total bytes in 0.000 secs.

The % Update List is 100% installed. After killing rpm process and releasing locks

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Problem reoccurs also after reboot.
2. rpm -Uvh any_new_package
Additional info:
I've seen in Bugzilla #74726 (now status closed) the same for Psyche.

Thank you in advance, Aron

Yes, same as #74726, but the root causes are very, very different.

    rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
and upgrade to rpm-4.2-1 packages from
is the answer. (Assuming Red Hat 9, use rpm-4.1.1 if Red Hat 8.0)
