What is the simplest way to reinstall an older rpm package? rpm-4.2-0.71
segfaults on me when installing packages.

Comment 3 Michael Young 2003-03-19 10:13:40 UTC
There has been some discussion of this on the phoebe mailling list. The message
https://listman.redhat.com/pipermail/phoebe-list/2003-March/004704.html
is probably the most useful.
