Glibc2.3.2 broke RPM


I have a problem. I just upgraded glibc to glibc-2.3.2-6. Installed via RPM 3 packages. glibc, glibc-devel, and glibc-locale, all 2.3.2-6. All show up under rpm -qa | grep glibc.
Now I CANNOT RPM anything!! rpm -qa works, rpm checks dependencies, but when it actually comes to installing stuff, i get a Segmentation fault, on any and all packages I try to install. This makes it difficult to even go back to old glibc (which was 2.2.5), as I cannot RPM it back into place. I am thinking I may I may need to compile the Glibc 2.2.5 libraries, and install them, but then how do I unlink the old one, and make sure that the new one is seen and used by RPM?

I am on a Suse 8.1 on PentiumIII. I downloaded the RPMs from rpmseek.com
