Error "can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Permission denied)" when trying to run the rpm installer for TIBCO Spotfire Server
While trying to run the rpm installer for the TIBCO Spotfire Server on Redhat Linux, we may see the following message:
"can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Permission denied)" The reason for the permission denied error is that the RPM installers are required to be run with elevated permissions (SUDO).
Here is a sample of how the command would look like:
sudo rpm -ivh <filename>.rpmPlease check with your Linux administrator to ensure the proper permissions are in place. External: RPM installation having NO root access
