Subject: [SATLUG] Fedora 11 and Yum

Just updated from Fedora 10 to 11.  Yum worked in Fedora 10.?

When typing 'yum' at the command line as root, get a message that says?

'No module named yum'. 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 in the directory where?

the yum*.src file is located, as root 'rpmbuild --rebuild yum*.src.rpm' per instructions above,?

same result, get same error message.?

Any hints?  really need yum for updates.?
