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

4. Start a terminal and run "yum list installed" or another command.
5. Get the error message below.
Graphical app dies. Yum outputs this:
[root@localhost ~]# yum upgrade yum
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
No module named cElementTree
Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.4.3 (#1, Oct 1 2006, 18:00:19)
[GCC 4.1.1 20060928 (Red Hat 4.1.1-28)]
If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
Able to install PHP4.
Trying to install PHP 4 as cgi-bin to run alongside php-5 Should already be the
default setup for Apache.
The GUI dieing has happened twice before and I reboot and then it works. I'll
try that again.
Can you provide the output of 'rpm -V yum pirut'?
