Description of problem:

After a recent yum update, anytihng i do with yum looks something like this:

# yum update
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 85, in main
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/cli.py", line 183, in getOptionsConfig

  File "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/installonlyn.py", line 23, in ?
    from yum.packages import YumInstalledPackage, comparePoEVR
ImportError: cannot import name comparePoEVR

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

Fedora Core 6 test 2, I don't know how to get version of yum, "yum --version"
gives a similar error.

How reproducible:

Every time.  At least until I get tired of it and reinstall.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "yum <command>", such as "yum update" or "yum --version"
2. Watch the stack trace
3. Cry
Actual results:
Loss of hair

Expected results:
Beautifying of computer

Additional info:
Well, Initial install of Fedora Core 6 test 2 resulted in Video being all whacky
(defined as : boot screen image was wayyyy too compressed for this
non-widescreen monitor, then X-Windows at the right resoltion (manually set) had
a black square on the top left, so I did a yum update, and that was fixed.  Only
thing: Now yum is broken.
