removing an rpm
Im trying to simply just remove the perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3 rpm so i can install a much newer version from source.
rpm --nodeps -e perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3
after this, the system just sits there, for hours if i leave it doing nothing.
rpm as a whole seems to be locked up after this, doing rpm -qa just to get a package list freezes, whereas it was working before i tried to do the remove. A reboot seems to eb the only way to free rpm as far as i can see.
