Need help installing Sendmail Patch, Please!
I need to install the sendmail rpm update on my remote webserver and I am getting errors:
[admin@web10]$ rpm -Fvh sendmail-8.11.6-23.71.i386.rpm
error: cannot get exclusive lock on /var/lib/rpm/Packages
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Operation not permitted (1)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
I did not set this machine up, I took over the job, unwittingly, from the person who used to have it. Can someone please tell me what the heck I need to do?
