    I too am running Red Hat 7.2 and rpm -qa |grep abi*
    reply's with ONLY abiword-0.7.14-7 so I did :
    [root@matrix root]# rpm -e abiword-0.7.14-7
    error: cannot open Sigmd5 index using db3 - No such file or
    directory (2)
    error: cannot open Filemd5s index using db3 - No such file or
    directory (2)

    What would you try next?
    [root@matrix abi]# rpm - Uvh abiword-fonts-0.99.5-1.noarch.rpm
    abiword-clipart-0.99.5-1.noarch.rpm abiword-gnome-0.99.5-1.i386.rpm

    or do I need to address the 2 index error issues first?

    Is the order of the RPMs, as shown above, important?
