Just updated from Fedora 10 to 11.  Yum worked in Fedora 10.  Now yum does not load.  Here's the steps taken, any hints greatly appreciated.

John Clements

Typed yum as root, following appeared

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

   No module named yum

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:
2.6 (r26:66714, Mar 17 2009, 11:44:21)
[GCC 4.4.0 20090313 (Red Hat 4.4.0-0.26)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
  http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq "

YumFaq at question 7 states:

"If you are getting a message that yum itself is the missing module then you probably installed it incorreclty (or installed the source rpm using make/make install). If possible, find a prebuilt rpm that will work for your system like one from Fedora or CentOS. Or, you can download the srpm and do a

rpmbuild --rebuild yum*.src.rpm"

found yum-3.2.23-0.src.rpm via google and downloaded, then
typed as root rpmbuild --rebuild yum*.src.rpm per instructions above,  same result, get same error message.

Any hints?  really need yum for updates.
