rpm -V yum yum-metadata-parser does not give any result.
I did find that this error was a result of the package
python-sqlite-2.3.3-1.el5.rf from rpmforge.net being installed. This package has
now been removed and the RHEL5 client package, python-sqlite-1.1.7-1.2.1, is
installed in its place. Yum and pirut now performs properly, which suggets a bug
with the rpmforge.net built package and not with yum or pirut.
The two versions of python-sqlite aren't at all compatible. rpmforge really
shouldn't be replacing packages like that.
