I have tried su root, then
all cann't terminate a rpm process...
How to handle this case, except rebooting the server?
The process state is always the same:
root 32422 0.0 0.1 17488 2852 ? D 14:26 0:00 rpm -ivh abc.rpm
NOTE: there's a question mark above following "2852", does it mean something was going wrong?
And now I just cann't install any rpm packages. Are there any tricks to make the lock-break of rpm?
# rpm -qa
warning: waiting for shared lock on /var/lib/rpm/Packages
error: cannot get shared 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
But I just cannot reboot the server right away, because many important tasks are running?
Does this matter with the NFS, NIS services?
my OS: SuSE 9.3
