FC3 upgrade + YUM ERRORS


hey all, i am trying to upgrade FC1 to FC3.

First course of action i took was to veriffy the Project key was installed:
rpm -q gpg-pubkey-6b8d79e6-3f49313d
it was not installed. So then i did:
rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

i then got both:
fedora-release-3-8.i386.rpm AND yum-2.1.11-3.noarch.rpm

ran:
rpm -Uvh --force fedora-release-3-8.i386.rpm yum-2.1.11-3.noarch.rpm
which said yum was installed 50% and fedora release 100%

i then said : yum upgrade
This did not work, so i used up2date -u yum, to upgrade YUM.

THen tried again, and still got the the same error, the error is:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/use/bin/yum", line 6, in ?
import yummain
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 23, in ?
import yum
ImportError: No module named yum



What does this mean??? Any help is so much appretitated . THanks so much!!

It was wrong to --force upgrade yum. You must have very good before --force makes sense and doesn't break something. For instance, remember that --force implies --replacefiles, so it can overwrite existing files which belong to other packages you don't want to disturb.

But the real problem is, FC1 comes with Python 2.2, while FC3 comes with Python 2.3. When running FC3 yum in FC1, it won't find its own Python module.

If you want a nice step by step for FC1 to FC3 via yum check out this link: https://www.olen.net/node/194
I haven't done it myself, but it looks simple

thanks for the site, i have tried it. I have built my problem bigger now. THis is my first time trying to update my system. I am supposidly now running FC3 on the newest 2.6 kernel. I have tried many things for yum, but with every use i get an import error, that there is no nodule name yum.

I then decided to try to clean install, downloaed and burned the new ISO. Put in the first cd, and does not boot. When the new system boots. the cdrom drive is not loaded, no module or anything.


Is there someway i can just clean this out, and start fresh??

THanks so much

Have you installed FC1 from CD before, so you know how to burn an ISO image correctly? Which ISO image files for FC3 did you download? How did you burn them to CD?

hey, i downloaded the ISO from linuxiso.org.
I downloaded them to my windows machine, then burnt each disk.
I think my problem is however, that my newly upgraded FC3 does not load the cdrom drive module. SO i get no response from the cdrom drive when i put the first disk ISO and start the machine. I have tried to reboot into my old kernel, but of course, my mouse does not work in the old kernel, haha, figures.
