I'm running RedHat 6.5 Linux on a Pentium Pro. Its a clean server installation

You need the db3 packages first, if you wish to install rpm-4.0.2.
They're available through Red Hat updates/errata for 6x.
You might try rpm-4.0.3 packages instead from
The packages with "6x" in the release are what you're gonna need.
rpm-4.0.3 has an interbal copy of Berkeley DB, so you won't
need the db3 packages.
I tried installing the rpm-4.0.3 as suggested, thats still dont fix the
problem. I still miss librpm.so.0 and librpmio.so.0 to install the snmp
