Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2003-12-24 10:36:44 EST
Version of rpm please.

You might also try
    rm -f /var/lib/rpm/Pubkeys
    rpm --rebuilddb -vv

If that fixes, then this bug fixed in rpm-4.2.2-0.6 in fc2.
Comment 3 Bernd Bartmann 2003-12-24 10:57:47 EST
I'm using rpm-4.2.1-0.30 from FC1.

After executing the two commands you specified above I could
successfully install the rpmlint rpm.
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2003-12-24 11:48:50 EST
OK, tnx for verify. try rpm-4.2.2-0.6 for fix, dangling
ptr brain fart.
