    RPM stalling on use

    whenever I try to do anything with RPM it stalls

    rpm -i packagename
    rpm -e packagename
    rpm -ef packagename

    anything. and it stalls.

    even the graphical rpm management program salls.

    my OS is RedHat 9.0 with a full install, ran up2date

    When you say stalled, how long have you let it sit there? Is there any disk drive activity or error msg?

    Also have you tried

    To install a package: rpm –ivh
    ex. rpm -ivh somepackage.rpm


    To see if a package is installed: rpm -q [packagename]
    ex. rpm -q somepackage.rpm


    To get info on an installed package: rpm -qi [packagename]
    rpm -qi somepackage.rpm

    Let us know what, if anything you get.
