At last install fest I installed REDHAT 9 on a new laptop with help from
Mike Miller (thanks Mike).
Last week I downloaded the free RealPlayer pkg with file name:
rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2.rpm
I tried to install by using command:
>rpm -i rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2.rpm

Result was: Segmentation fault

The file itself seems to be OK because I ftp it to an old Gateway PC and
there it installed just fine.

Then on the laptop I tried:

root>rpm --rebuilddb
After about 11 minutes I got the response: error db4 error(16) from
dbenv->remove. Device or resource busy.

Something seems sick with my RPM stuff. Do you recommend I reinstall
REDHAT 9(with same 3 CD's we used the first time) ??

Thanks.
