Fedora Core Fedora Core 1 has been out now for a few days now and many faithful Linux fans have already installed it. Red Hat's Linux is still one of my favorite distributions because of one main reason: compatibility with Linux software. Red Hat is a market leader and following the market leader assures the least trouble for most users. But is this the case with Fedora Core?

RPM locking

You can fix "RPM locking" without rebooting - I discovered how by snooping through the init scripts. You need to remove /var/lib/rpm/__db*, and then it works properly again.
