RPM Help please
I installed etherape 4.2 - installed and ran perfectly.
I decided to upgrade to 5.0 - it didn't run.
I attempt to re-install 4.2 - can't. 5.0 is installed.
I try to remove with rpm (rpm --erase) - hangs up forever.
I try other options (replacepkgs) - doesn't work.
Then I verify version 5.0 using rpm.
It says it is installed - and lists the files, but shows them all as "MISSING"
Any ideas? I need to remove 5.0 from my system now so I can re-install 4.2.
NOTE: I have tried installing every version up through 9 - no luck.

what about using the "--oldpackage" option?
It will "upgrade" to an older version for your.
You can also force the upgrade... to do this.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

rpm --upgrade --oldpackage etherape****** worked like a charm.
Thanks a TON. I forced an upgrade earlier, but it did not take. It took the --oldpackage option to get it to go.
