I can answer the second part:
If you want to remove an rpm then on the command line do:
rpm -e <rpm name>
so if the rpm is called Synaptic you would do:
rpm -e synaptic
the -e switch is for erase.

The first question:

From the rpm man page:

--force
Same as using --replacepkgs, --replacefiles, and --oldpackage.

To get your text in the correct position, first type [_code_] without the underscores,
and then paste your text. Then type [_/code_] without the underscores. It will then
look like this:
Code:
mingdao@paul:Sat Feb 28 22:33:02~$ lsmod

If you have a line that's too long, like the last line of my output, just put a return
in it when you post, and maybe some spaces on the next line, and Preview Reply
until it looks okay - so that the viewers don't have to scroll left to right.

It looks as if the other fellers have answered your technical questions.

1) please use useful thread titles, like "segfault on synaptic"
2) it's not an expert question, it's pretty stragiht forward.

thanks

expert ( eks'pert: for adj., also eks pert', ik spert' )

so, from the two words ex and spert we get the meaning of
a former drip under pressure

I'm a former lot-of-stuff but definately not under pressure. Therefore I'm no expert.
