Pinned topic Cannot get exclusive lock on databasse for rpm on AIX 6.1

‏2013-01-13T14:37:19Z |
I was trying to install a python rpm on AIX 6.1 and it was taking too long and so I had to close ther terminal.

Later when I tried to install the same rpm as root I am getting the problem as :

root:stud -> $ rpm -i -v python-2.6.7-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm cannot get exclusive lock on database error: cannot open /opt/freeware/packages/packages.rpm
