Description Jaroslaw Sosnicki 1999-07-20 20:22:47 UTC
[root@www RPMS]# rpm -e rpm-3.0.3-0.2
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:
        rpm >= 2.5 is needed by kdesupport-1.1.1-2
[root@www RPMS]#

You probably don't want to remove rpm or you won't be able to use
rpm ever again.

You can downgrade to a different version of rpm if necessary
by adding --force to the command line, as in
	rpm -U --force older_rpm_package_here
