Problem with rpmdrake in 9.2

After I updated to drake 9.2 from 9.1 I've been having some trouble with rpmdrake. It keeps freezing at random times and never unfreezes. A few tmes I've been able to get through the complete install but not usually. Any suggestions?

"Any suggestions?"

One possibility is that you may have a corrupt rpm database. You can rebuild the database by logging in as root and typing:
rpm --rebuilddb

If that is not the problem then you might try using command line rpm and kpackage to do your installs.

Another thing that you might do is:
rpm -qa | sort > /root/all.rpm.txt
This will give you a complete list of all of your rpms. Check all.rpm.txt to see if rpmdrake has managed to get two versions of the same package installed simultaneously.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
