rpm -qa command hangs

I don't know what's wrong with my package configuration.

When i issue "rpm -qa" command to list all the packages, it shows only some packages and then stop there as if it is trying to find other packages. It seems hang.

Also in graphical mode, when i start the package add/remove program, there is a small dialog showing a progress bar. that dialog also hangs.

So what's wrong ?
