From the poptAliasOptions
part of the error, I'd guess the earlier install broke something or you got a bad .rpm
rpm -e libpopt-1.7-ipl1mdk.i586.rpm
to remove the package.
Then try rpm -qa.
Edit: I assume you're installing the package on a Mandrake system (mdk = mandrake)? Your user thingy says Red Hat.
