Unable to install Intel C++ compiler (segfault)

Unable to install Intel C++ compiler (segfault)

I am trying to install icc v.7.1.031 under
Slackware 9.1 (kernel 2.4.22, gcc 3.2.3,
glibc 2.3.2).

I get the following response to the
interactive dialog

What rpm install options would you like? [-U --replacefiles]
-ivh --nodeps

Substitute Headers for Intel C++ Compiler for 32-bit applications, Version 7.1
Installing...
./install: line 577: 1707 Segmentation fault rpm $OPTIONS $PREFIX $CHOSENRPM >&$TEMPFILE.rpmout
Preparing... ##################################################
Installation failed.

and a similar result if I try and install directly
(using rpm) from the command line.

I didn't have this problem before: I was able to install
an earlier version of the compiler (with gcc 3.2.3 and glibc 2.3.1).

Can anyone suggest the likely cause of the segfault and how to fix it?

Many thanks,

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

The problem is with the version of rpm (4.0.2).
With rpm v.4.2.1 icc installs without difficulty.
