libpopt.so.0: cannot open shared object file

Unable to use Redhat 8 rpm-4.1 while trying to upgrade(to rpm-4.2) then de-grade back(to rpm-4.1).

Successfully upgraded popt-1.7-1.06.i386.rpm to popt-1.8.1-0.30.i386.rpm.
Uninstalled popt-1.8.1-0.30.i386.rpm by force in order to go back to popt-1.7-1.06.i386.rpm. At this point rpm became unusable.

Believe, rpm-4.2 is currently still on the system?

Help needed in this confused rpm state.

thanks.

I suspect that you'll have to fix this by re-installing the correct libpopt & rpm from a "rescue" boot. Boot off of the 1st 8.0 CD in rescue mode and use the '--root /mnt/sysimage' option to cause rpm to affect mounted system (see man rpm for details). You'll have to specify the path to each of the rpm's as an absolute path beginning with /mnt/sysimage.
