Looks like you are trying to install a package that was created by a more recent
version of rpm that does support Lzma compression while your own rpm version
doesn't. Can you please add a link to the package you are trying to install and
state what distribution you are using.
Comment 3 Florian Festi 2008-07-30 11:23:02 EDT
Fedora does not support rpm packages with Lzma compresion yet. Rpm upstream
already has Lzma support but it is not yet released and therefore may not get
into Fedora 9. As a work around you can try to rebuild the source package on
your system.

I am closing this as it is more or less a missing feature and installing random
packages from other distributions is neither supported nor encouraged.
Nevertheless this problem is already targeted by upstream and expected to go
away in the future (releases of the involved distributions).
