Segmentation error

I have run into a regular problem with "segmentation error" when I try and intall applications with an rpm. I can't see anything in this script which is giving me a clue as to what the problem might be. Because I have had this happen on nuerous occasions with different applications I am wondering whether the issue is a Fedora one (or more likely me) rather than a difficulty with the rpm itself.

Any pointers on what might be going on would be helpful.

The script , as far as it goes, is as follows:

[root@localhost dave]# rpm -ivv /home/dave/applications/amaya/amaya_gl-8.5-1.i386.rpm
