My particular situation isn't on a Linux box, rather an IBM i. But I'm running RPM within a BASH shell and attempted to download and install nano using RPM - it failed. I didn't think anything of it, but now I'm noticing authority failures to the RPM download directory whenever I restart my web server instance.
I'm pulling at strings by now, but my best guess is that RPM is attempting to retry the failed download/install every time I restart the web server instance. I understand IBM i and Linux are different, but from a Linux standpoint, Does RPM automatically retry failed download/install attempts? If not, does it do anything in the event of a failed download/install beyond an error message stating it failed?
Note*: I really don't think RPM requires a web server to function, but like I said I'm just pulling on any string I can think of at the moment.
