Description of problem:
The Kpackage pops up an error when it starts to install an RPM package. No 
numeric error is indicated. Under GNOME the problem is the same, it does 
not let you install any RPM.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to install an RPM for instance StarOffice ( any can be chosen ).
2.After a few seconds apparently when the installer decompreses files it 
inmediatly pops up a message saying Kpackage error please contact 
3.It always happened. I tried to install the operating system four (  from 
the begining ) times and the problem persists.

Actual Results:  Nothing. The problem is not solved.

Expected Results:  The Kpackage should have to show up the files to 
install from the package. No files appear.

Additional info:

I tried to install RPMs from GNOME and KDE with the same results. I could 
not install any aditional package from the distribution, for instance 
StarOffice. No numeric error is reported.

kpackage does display an error message but the packages *are* installed. 
I've verified this behavior on a 7.1 system before and after applying all 
of the security/bug-fix errata. Packages were successfully installed from 
CDROM and an NFS share. 
Closing as NOTABUG since the packages are installed (though, I do believe 
that the error message should still be dealt with -- see bug# 49266)
