I upgraded to 6.2 version of RH Linux and my problem is solved now. Most of the newer versions of software can be installed properly now.
Also as adam882001 is having the same problem I will suggest him to upgrade to 3.0.5 version of rpm first then try higher of that and so on. It solves the problem of showing older version number.

Hi there ugge
I too am having the same problem. I do hope that someone replies to you soon because I'm like a fish on a hook. I can't install anything because I can't figure out how do install the lastest RPM manager.
I dl the lastest rpm tarball and did the usually tar zxvf rpm-4.04.tar.gz and it goes happily along and does its thing but when i do a rpm --version is still says 3.0
What part of the procedure am I missing?
