I know we shouldn't try this but i want a way to supress this warning
message "warning: cannot get exclusive lock on /var/lib/rpm/Packages".
I dont want to give a big list of rpms to install a product and also i dont
want to use a wrapper to install these rpms.

Please suggest a way to supress this warning message.....
