i did this
rpm -i libmng-1.0.3-2mdk.src.rpm

ok so i looked in the /usr/lib and i see a symbolic link on the file? that's pointing to the old one... how do i get it to point to the new one?

Just do this (as root because i dont think u have permissions to write on that dir):

ln -sf /usr/lib/name_of_new_file /usr/lib/
