    This is a long known problem, you can work around it with
    LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 or get the 4.2-1 rpms from
    ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test-4.2/.

    Basically follow the steps in Redhat Bugzilla
    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=89662 and you
    should be all set.

    Later,
    Tom
