Ditto for me. From what I gather from from various rpm
related news forums that rpm 4.0 may be containing
bugs. They advise use of rpm 4.02. I am surprised how
RedHat has not come out with a solution on their
website. the problem it seems is in RPM 4 being a
major upgrade from RPM 3. There is also something
regarding change of database being used by both the
formats, which I haven't figgured out yet. Will post
when I find  solution.
