Re: rpm -Fvh hanging on rh8.0



rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*

Redhat is famous for producing things that malfunction -- be it gcc, rpm or kernel.

I ran "sudo rpm -Fvh *.rpm" and it hung.

and it never ends, after waiting half-an-hour. I'm still waiting....

As I wait for the process to finish,
there remain a whole bunch of duplicate rpms, e.g.:
[sharrison@localhost build]$ rpm -q cvs
cvs-1.11.2-5
cvs-1.11.2-8

[sharrison@localhost build]$ rpm -q mysql
mysql-3.23.52-3
mysql-3.23.54a-4

What happened?  I have never seen this behavior before on any
of my systems.  Also... please are there basic tips about how
to clean this up if, for instance, I have to terminate the
"rpm -Fvh" shell process?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Regards,
Scott
