The Compaq Linux Management agents depends heavily on ucd-snmp. Might be a good 
idea to co-operate with Compaq Linux team with this issue.
Refer to the following document:

Hmmm. I suspect you need to install the newest update packages for rpm for RH
6.2 on that machine, especially rpm-build package as that one own the
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES directory.

This also makes sense as without the rpm-build package you can't rebuild rpm
packages from SRPMS.

Hope this explains everything.

Read ya, Phil

Great. Seems to work.
It might be a good idea to include a notice on rpm 4.0.2 page that the new 
owner of /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES is rpm-build not rpm as it used to be on the 
old rpm package.

And by the way, VERY impressive response time. This saved my day. Thanks.
