It allowed me to install, again, but I still have the errors.
It reports unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel on just about everything. I still can't uninstall it, and the files it reports are there. The rpm I'm trying to install is the closest to the kernel version i could find.
I ran rpm --test and it just returned to the command line w/ no output, and rpm --test RPMpackagename is an invalid option
Thanks for the help, guess I gotta dig deeper for what the problem is.
