Description bjn 1999-08-02 12:40:28 UTC
I have been getting this error occasionally when installing
or upgrading an RPM.  This morning's example was upgrading
squid-2.2.3 (from an external provider) to squid-2.2.STABLE4
(from the RedHat updates section).

"free list corrupt (7626952)- contact support@redhat.com"

The files appear to all get installed, but "rpm -qa" shows
the old version number, so it must be bailing out before it
finishes.  Removing the old one, and installing ("rpm -i")
the new one, gets the same error.

Try
	rpm --rebuilddb
and repeat the command that failed. Usually this problem occurs
when rpm is attempting to install 2 versions of the same rpm
in the same command. Please reopne the bug if the problem
persists.
