rpm -e uninstall acting weird, I think


Hi all, I am uninstalling gnome-vfs-devel-1.0.5-6 with the command "rpm -e gnome-vfs-devel-1.0.5-6". After running that command, a little cursos is blinking with no prompt, just a blinking cursos. How long should this take to uninstall? I can't seem to break it. Any thoughts?

Chris

also, rpm was broken in 8.0.

if you kill rpm you have to remove the tmp files:
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__*

then try removing like I suggested.

do a query [rpm -q] to see the real package name, then remove it with the parameter -evv
