View Full Version : Waiting for transaction lock
12th October 2004, 12:32 AM
Hello Galls an Guys,
I am not able to install any rpms. If I try to manually or yum install a rpm it always tells me its waiting for a transaction lock and never goes further than that.
Can anyone point me to the right direction?

When did it start, it is fairly common. try to kill all frozen rpm transaction killall rpm and check if there are any files in the directory /var/lock/rpm.

I have /var/lock but not /var/lock/rpm. Maybe thats a clue.
