Issue during rpm -ivh ??


My Linux hangs when I try running:
Code:
[root@Splus ~]# rpm -ivh <package name>
warning: waiting for transaction lock on /var/lock/rpm/transaction
Any idea why its showing the error?

Hey..It Done.I changed IP and that did the trick.I had wrongly assigned the same IP which was in existence and after changing it to unique things worked.
