I am trying to use rpm to install a package on my Redhat 9 box and it just keeps hanging. I am wanting to install help2man so I got the package help2man-1.29-1cl.noarch.rpm from http://rpm.pbone.net/
I tried the command as suggested above, namely
rpm -ihv help2man-1.29-1cl.noarch.rpm
I also tried other options for testing etc., but no joy from any of them. The system monitor indicates that rpm is 'sleeping'.
When I try to install it rpm just seems to hang. I also tried to install the source help2man-1.29-1.src.rpm and that also hangs.
Any help would be gratefully received.
