Security issue? can not apply security patches using yum.
Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2004-11-09 00:05:36 EST
Not a security issue, any more than 'system won't boot' is a security

rpm -q libxml2 libxml2-python

tell me what it turns up.
were you running fc3 from a pure install or did you run the test/rc
releases? Were you running rawhide?
Comment 2 Robert 'Bob' Jensen 2004-11-09 00:32:51 EST
I found the problem on this, I was not running rawhide however at some
point ended up with libxml2-python-2.6.15-2 while running FC2. 
Comment 3 Robert 'Bob' Jensen 2004-11-09 00:46:13 EST
libxml2-python-2.6.15-2 was part of an update Oct 28th 2004, I am told
after FC3 was closed.
