Description of problem:
[root@rcc-dhcp-249-13 ~]# yum
The yum libraries do not seem to be availableon your system for this version
of python 2.4.1 (#1, Aug 25 2005, 13:53:31)
[GCC 4.0.0 20050519 (Red Hat 4.0.0-8)]
Please make sure the package you used to installyum was built for your install
after yum-ing sys.path shows /usr/local/lib* instead of /usr/lib64/*
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Results: yum should not break itself. Pretty much crippled the machine, since most of
FC4 config stuf relies on python
what did you actually yum install here?
can you run: rpm -qa --last | head -10
and return the output?
Created attachment 118392 [details]
rpm -qa --last
After frsh install of fc4 I, yum install python-util. I also, yum install
python-devel. prior to that a coleague had run yum up2date. In the process of
one of those python seems to have reinstalled itself into /usr/local/lib,
because it was initially in /usr/lib64. Since then I have tried to roll the
python install back using the FC4 cds. I basically used rpm to install
anything with *python* in the package name, with the replacepckgs opt. yum
still will not work, and I found that I get the following error, when running
yum and up2date:
ImportError: /usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/iconv.so: undefined
I want to reinstall python, to its fresh FC4 state. but how to accomplish
Where is python-util from? This looks like a python package was installed that
isn't built with the same settings that we use.
