I dont really know if I am making a fool of myself trying this but whenever I try to install the kernel-2.6.2-1.81.x86_64.rpm <http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/x86_64/Fedora/RPMS/kernel-2.6.2-1.81.x86_64.rpm> from http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/x86_64/Fedora/RPMS/ it just hangs, I try to redirect verbose output but nothing comes out. Any ideas?

I think the x86_64 platform is still susceptible to locking-related RPM hangs. I haven't had this happen on i686 for quite some time, but it just happened to me, the other day, on x86_64.


Go into /var/lib/rpm, and delete all __db* crap. That should fix it.
