I saw this thing happen two times before. I did an update of many RPM-packages and the hell knows why when processing rpm seemed to stop working and took around 100% system load. I killed rpm after waiting some minutes and tried to process explicitly this one package, but rpm showed just the same behaviour... As a solution I made a backup of my rpm-database (/var/lib/rpm) and regenerated it with rpm --rebuilddb. After that the update ran as expected.

I installed the recommended updated packages on my suse 7.3. Everything worked fine when passed on as a list (command "rpm -Fhv
mod_ssl*"). mod_php4 worked fine too except mod_php4 that hangs after the progress
is complete. after 30min of high cpu usage of rpm (~90%) I killed it...
any ideas what the problem could be?
