rpms "hang" during install [solved]

Recommended Posts

Really odd problem and nothing has shown up in logs.

 

It happened today, i went to usromi mutt, i noticed it was taking forever on the "installing <package name>...." part. I mean it had been sitting there for about 10-15mins. So i killed it (CTRL+C) and tried again, same result. Tried other packages, same result. They download, but wont install.

 

Tried just 'rpm' using the urpmi cache and same thing. I am unable to install anything.

 

I have no idea where to begin troubleshooting this one.

 

Thanx for reading.

Ahhh just found (through a ps ax | grep rpm) that msec was running an rmpv on a whole HEAP of packages.

 

Took awhile and i guess thats what 'blocked' my rpm -i

 

Never had that problem before...

I have a similar problem - using MCC I select packages and install starts just fine, but it never finishes and it sort of dies after a while.

 

What to do?

The best way to troubleshoot that one is to install using the urpmi on the command line, that way you may get more info back.

 

alternatively, you can try launching MCC from a terminal and check back it installs for any verbose output that may help.
