Description Adrian Likins 2003-01-28 07:08:14 UTC
Description of problem:
if there are lock files, stale or otherwise, update might
not being able to use rpm correctly.

jbj has suggested that `up2date` just remove these files
when it starts up.

Comment 1 Chip Turner 2003-01-29 17:34:58 UTC
this seems insane.  if you remove the lockfiles, might you not end up
interrupting a running transaction?
