I believe there are some interoperatbility problems between
Red Hat 5.2 and 6.0 rpm programs.   When I did a port of
mipsel linux to a MIPS development board, I started by
booting the RH 6.0 mipsel root file system, with the 6.0
rpm program, and found that I could not reliably install
the 5.2 gcc/glibc binary RPMs on the SGI server.  I
backed off to a 5.2 level root file system and rpm program,
and the problems went away.
