Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-07-24 14:21:38 UTC
Version of rpm please. If -0.66 or thereabouts, upgrade to -0.81, the latest
build.

Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2001-07-24 14:41:09 UTC
Yes, rpm-4.0.3-0.66, the one that comes with beta2. Where can I get -0.81 from?
Its not
in rawhide on beta.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-07-24 14:57:12 UTC
Latest rpm build will be available in the next day or two , at least at
	ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test-4.0.3
probably also through Raw Hide.
