Deleting files from an RPM

Hi Warren,
I don't use Red Hat, but the RPM command has a force (--force) option. I 
suggest you try that.

files in the second RPM. I tried deleting the conflicting file, but it does not solve the problem. I suspect this is because installing the RPM registers the file in the system. Any way to clear that so the second RPM will load?
