SkyHi @ Saturday, June 19, 2010
If rpm / yum command hangs during operations or you see error messages -

it means your rpm database corrupted.

/var/lib/rpm/ stores rpm database just delete the same and <strong>rebuild rpm database</strong>:

Command to rebuild rpm database

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*

rpm --rebuilddb -v -v
