Looks like 5.0.2 wasn't tested too thoroughly. On RH7.2, libtool script dies with a syntax error, configure doesn't perform all Makefile.in substitutions properly, etc.

He is right.
There are really rare cases where rpm packages
should depends on each other causing
a circular dependecy.
This is a packaging bug.
The best thing to do is to write your own rpm spec
file and compile it. 8)

the real solution:
rpm -Uvh Mesa-common-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm Mesa-3.2.1-1rh61.i386.rpm

Oh, yes; timecop bitching again.
There's certainly a problem if common requires the base but since you will install them both, install them with the same command. This way all dependencies get filled.

Don't use RPM, be a real man and compile from source.
