I have here a CentOS 5 and I'm trying to run
yum install php-soap but the installer hangs on and the last step is
Running Transaction Test.
I found out that NFS shares are the problem. See here or here or here. I tried to unmount everything which came up when entering
cat /etc/mtab | grep nfs. I also tried to use
umount -a -t nfs. Then I run the install command. But I can't get this working.
strace yum -y update show me many lines, but I can't get a sense out of it.
Furthermore I tried
/bin/rm /var/lib/rpm/__db.* cd /var/cache/yum /bin/rm -rf * yum clean all yum update
but still hangs on.
Do I have to remove the mounts from the other server to this machine?
