add or remove packages freezes....FIXED... plz delete

when i open add or remove packages, it freezes at processing headers...
also when i run any rpm command (rpm -ivh ....... or rpm -e .......)
& if i su root & do any sort of yum update, install, etc....

on the bottom 2, i type them in a console, & then it goes to the next line, but it never says anything, & i don't get the # back either...

i am running fedora & i did all the updates from yum... then i rebooted, & now i can't seem to add or remove any packages......


i put in the fedora cd & booted from it & upgraded the installation, & now it works.... i don't get it, but oh well. it works now... you can delete this thread..

Most likely you've run into the "RPM stale locks" problem, which is encountered occasionally after rpm had been interrupted abnormally. The work-around would have been to terminate all rpm related processes and rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.*
