    Default FC3 Install Hanging on core RPM

    Hi,
    I'm installing on FC3 and during the install script when the rpms are installing, they never finish, they just hang. I tried installing the rpm's separately with the same result. Here's the output and at the very bottom is the point of hanging. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hmm... that almost sounds like there could be something wrong with the RPM database.

    Can you install other non-Zimbra RPM's at the moment?

    You may also want to verify that your Zimbra download isn't corrupted.. perhaps you could re-download it.

    If it's a RPM database problem, you could look into RPM's --rebuilddb option.

    If, by chance, you had installed Zimbra before on this machine, verify that no Zimbra related processes are running.

    Good luck,
    -Eric

    Default No Luck

    Thanks for the suggestions, I tried;
    Installing another rpm, that worked (fte text editor from source forge)
    Re-downloading and extracting the rpms again
    Rebuilding the db's of the zimbra rpms
    Erasing the previous half installs of the rpms
    (Not sure which processes are related to zimbra that need to be killed, yet mysql, ldap, smtp, are not running)
    Same spot with hanging on the install script and never printing Done when installing the core rpm.

    Any other ideas? Thanks again for the help it's much appreciated! Props to PA, I'm from there, yet live in MA (hope to be back soon to PA)!

    Hey there,

    That problem is most odd :-)

    Even though you were able to install other RPM's, I'm still a little suspicious of the RPM database on your system. I've had some of the oddest problems with RPM databases, though mostly with RedHat 8 and 9.

    I might try rebuilding your RPM database. Hopefully, this isn't a mission critical box, as I haven't done this in awhile and my steps might be out of order, misspelled, or missing a component :-)

    However, I might try this:
    * cd /var/lib/rpm
    * mkdir old
    * mv __db* old
    * rpm --rebuilddb

    This moves your existing RPM database into the dir 'old' (essentially making a backup), then rebuilds it. When complete, you should see the recreated __db* files in /var/lib/rpm.

    Again, please do a sanity check on these instructions, especially if you use this box for something else :-) Also, you'll find RPM's --rebuilddb option in the man page, you can read about what it does there if you're curious.

    After that, try installing Zimbra again.

    Oh, and I hope you make it back to PA. At least for the moment, the cost of living is a bit lower here :-)

    Good luck,
    -Eric

    Default rpm install

    I've never seen this (and I've done a LOT of installs

    The rpm db may indeed be bad, though if it allowed you to install a different RPM, it's _probably_ ok.

    Try this:

    rpm -e --noscripts --allmatches zimbra-core

    If that works, install by hand:

    rpm -i -vv zimbra-core-whatever.rpm

    Try to see where that hangs, if it does.

    If it does hang, repeat the above rpm -e, then reinstall without the scripts:
    rpm -i -vv --noscripts zimbra-core-whatever.rpm

    If that works, then the problem is in the pre or postinstall scripts of the rpm, and we can track that down.
