Description John 1999-07-31 03:34:58 UTC
Hi, I just tried to install an RPM, and received the
following message:

$ rpm -ivh
/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/gnome-libs-devel-1.0.12-1.i386.rpm
--nodeps
gnome-libs-devel
##################################################
free list corrupt (6200584)- contact support@redhat.com


I'm using a Redhat 5.2 box, with quite a few upgrade RPMs.
I'm running Gnome rpms built from the official tarballs.
The box is a P200mmx, running kernel version 2.2.4.

What does the message mean?

Thanks,
John Karcz

Try
	rpm --rebuildb
and then repeat the command. Usually this message comes from trying
to install two versions of a package in the same cmd line.
