    UP2DATE installation on RHEL4 hangs forewer

    495848
      Hi there,

      I am trying to install up2date downloaded from Oracle on my RHEL4 servers. On one of them installation hags forewer.

      Any idea?

      RHEL4.3 ( 2.6.9-34.0.1.ELsmp), Dell 6650

      ---------
      # rpm -Uvh up2date-4.4.69-40.6.*.rpm up2date-gnome-4.4.69-40.6.*.rpm

      warning: up2date-4.4.69-40.6.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID b38a8516

              gracic,

              One thing to try first is to clear out /var/spool/up2date and then run up2date again

                Sergio,

                It doesn't work. Same error again.
                I installed same packages on the other servers without problem.
                They are all RHEL4.3

                  gracic,

                  You said "Same error again". Is there an error message?

                      Goran,

                      After that warning it just hangs?

                      1) What's the output of uname -a

                      2) What's the result of rpm -qa | grep up2date

                        Yes, after I exec rpm command it just hags forever. Eventually I have to kill the process in order to get rid of it.

                        #uname -a

                          Goran,

                          Two things to try:

                          1) Download the latest up2date rpm that we just posted today from :

                          http://linux.oracle.com/switch.html

                          and try installing that. If that hangs also,

                          2) Try rebuilding the rpm database as is discussed at the end of this thread:

                          Re: up2date commandline question!

                            Thanks Sergio,

                            Clenaing RPM solved the problem.
                            rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*

                            I was able to install up2date after this.
