Package manager problems


I have been experiencing this a lot lately:

Whenever I try to install a new RPM with rpmdrake or the RedHat Package Manager (the GUIs), they get as far as "checking dependencies" and then stall.

If I urpmi from a term, I get something like this:

read depslist file [/var/lib/urpmi/depslist.ordered]
read provides file [/var/lib/urpmi/provides]
relocated 3001 entries in depslist


...whereupon the process stops and I have to do ctrl-c to kill it.

This isn't just happening with one package, and it doesn't seem to be dependent on what directory I am working in. What could be the cause of these failures?

Thanks!

Try running RPMDrake from the command (i.e. open a konsole session and run the command) and see what errors are thrown up on the konsole screen.

When I run rpmdrake from term, it says:
Release found:8.1

and the app builds half the screen then freezes. I have to kill it from the panel and ctrl-c the terminal session.

If I run urpmi from the term, it produces this output:

read depslist file [/var/lib/urpmi/depslist.ordered]
read provides file [/var/lib/urpmi/provides]
relocated 3001 entries in depslist

then freezes. I have to ctrl-c the terminal.

Any ideas?
