I am slowly making progress on installing Fedora into a Logical Volume for a DomU using Package Management. I have (with the help of the wonderful people at Unix & Linux) resolved a number of issues, mainly surrounding
rpm (see links below):
I am using the
--root option with
rpm to change my newly built version of rpm to
/mnt/fedRoot. I have also directed
rpm to look at the
rpmrc file in the build folder, rather than on the actual
/var/lib/rpm. Now Unfortunately, on any rpm file I run though I am getting:
error: can't create transaction lock on /mnt/fedRoot (Is a directory). Looking online, I found a few pages that indicated this was an issue with the
__db.*. Though deleting them and rebuilding the db within my
rpm folder fixed another issue, I am still getting the
transaction lock error.
Anyone have insight into this error?
