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 email@example.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.
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
