Exclamation RPM install Segmentation fault


Hi to all

For a few days a have a problem to install or remove rpm packages. I've tried to run "rpm --rebuilddb -vv" and it was fine without errors. I'm still looking for an answer and it seems that no one knows what could be the problem , although there is a lot of people with the same problem .
Here is the error as I get it - verbose .

Perhaps you need to update rpm? I haven't seen this happen. Try this:

rpm -Uvh --force mc-4.5.55-5.i386.rpm

and see what happens.

If the --force doesn't help, you might want to take a look at your heatsink and cpu-fan. If they aren't overheating, then you might ensure that all your memory is properly seated.
Installing rpm's is a workout for the processor.

It would be a good idea to test your memory.
