RMP errors


Could someone tell me the preferred method for getting around this error?
can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/__db.000

I don't think I have any other processes running that could be accessing that database. The only way I've found to cure it is to restart which is a pain.
Thanks

You can only install rpm packages as root or equivalent.

If you are having problems as root installing rpm packages then see;

Thanks, that did it. You'd think someone would change this so that it catches that error at the top and tells you something helpful like, 'Only root can do this', instead of what it does.
