right, so I think I've had about enough of this...

what causes RPM to (seemingly randomly) lockup when installing or
removing packages?

what known fixes are there to stop it from happening anymore?

how does anyone expect any kind of non-advanced technical user to deal
with an OS whose central functionality was broken in a major release and
not ever fixed, even just before the next major release? grr.

My system:
Latest Rawhide (20030921)
RPM 4.2.1-0.30
Kernel 2.4.20-19.9
