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?
