We recommend that you use RPM 4.3 or later (however see below for problems with
argument with some versions of RPM). The distribution files are also provided in

Some versions of RPM may cause problems (eg. RPM 3.0). If you get the following message when using the
rpm: only one of --prefix or --relocate may be used
try upgrading to RPM 3.0.2 or greater.
