Re: error in RPM install

Shalom to you and hi Vitaly,

The download of the rpm was incomplete. What Vitaly's telling you to do is check the signature on the rpm versus what you got. Those two numbers will be different.

Re-download, reinstall and all should be well.

Re: error in RPM install

Re: error in RPM install

I hope, you have RHN subscription for your RHEL4, so the best way is d/l squirrelmail via RHN: rhn.redhat.com.

If you don't have RHN subscription, you can d/l from CentOS: http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/4.4/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/

Rgds,
Vitaly

Re: error in RPM install

also check out the '--nosignature' option in rpm to ignore the signature of rpm files.

Re: error in RPM install

Download the rpm via wget and then install that. The binary gets corrupt in the download process, maybe M-in-T-M.

Re: error in RPM install

you probably have some probem with RPM database and/or installed packages.
Try to run:

1) rpm -qal >/dev/null
you should see no output

2) rpm -Va
you will see a list of modified files. If you see binaries in this list, you may have corrupted binaries

Check this link to rebuild your rpm database if that is the problem:
