Description Jørgen Thomsen 2006-04-28 08:59:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Same problem as in 160373 when upgrading from RH8 to Fedora5. Everything looks
normal in the upgrade log.

There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

   /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/libxml2mod.so: undefined symbol:

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.4.2 (#1, Feb 12 2006, 03:59:46)
[GCC 4.1.0 20060210 (Red Hat 4.1.0-0.24)]

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 388790 Feb 12 01:59

These versions seem to match.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

from FC5 DVD

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum

Comment 1 Jørgen Thomsen 2006-04-28 13:08:23 EDT
The cause has been found: an older version of libxml2.so in /usr/local/lib was
apparently found before the upgraded version in /usr/lib
