Fedora Core 2 (1.91) Problems after updates


Hello,

i installed the Fedora Core2 (1.91) on my Computer.
The first thing i did, was to update alle packages with up2date from the gnome desktop.
After this 14 packages had not been updated and i tried to start up2date again.
I also tried to strat it from the console and got the following message.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 12, in ?
import rpm
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/rpmmodule.so: undefined symbol: rpmdsBT


I dont know what to do. it looks like a missing python2.3 package.

anybody knows a solution for this problem???
i want to use up2date a little bit longer...

thanks

You may need to update the following packages manually to the latest, there was a bug that caused a conflict in the updates for up2date, python, and rpm.

python
rpm
rpm-python
librpm404
up2date
up2date-gnome
rpmdb-fedora

This should fix the problem. Just download these files to a new local directory (from the main server or a mirror) and then update them on the system using the command:
rpm -U *.rpm

conflicting versions...

Do you have rpm-4.3.1-0.1 installed?

Check what versions you are running of all of the above, plus rpm-lib. You should not have any duplicate versions of these. This error was posted to the fedora-test-list several times.. most of the problems were:
1) not having the rpm package installed that matched the other versions
2) having an old rpm-lib package installed (two versions)

If you want to check what other solutions may have been posted, see this url: http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-test-list
Search the archives for rpmdsBT.
