services wont start, nor service-config


FC1
I installed a printer, since then all my administration tools nor my services will start.
no cups , no sound, no possibility to do it from bash-

...depending on which service I ant to start I get further messages like:

(redhat_config_services)

could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
could not find platform dependent libraries<exec_prefix>

consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]

Traceback (most recent call units)
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-services/serviceconf.py" , line 26, in?
import gtk
Import Error: No module named gtk

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
all other services like cups etc. give me the same:

blabla
could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
could not find platform dependent libraries<exec_prefix>

consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
blabla
-------------------
I uninstalled the printer, did a refiguration , but the problem proceed.

any idea?
thx

Printer installation (do you mean the hardware?) is unrelated and certainly not the cause of your trouble.

You've messed up your Python installation somehow. Try reinstalling python related packages. Also take a look at the output of "rpm --query --all --last | less" to see what packages were installed or updated recently.

when I try to install python, it says that the package is allready installed.

python related packages? ...hmm, I could not run the add software-packages service. same/simular error message as in first post.

someone said to rebuild python...what does he mean? force uninstall and then install again?
dont want to do it before I get some further confirmation, that this might be a solution.


btw: it seems that I have a problem with fedora recognizing libs in general:

I installed various libs.so and when I try to install a new package it does not find the lib. dispite the fact, that I just installed it.. but thats another story

Reinstalling packages is a manual process. Don't hope that there are tools which are intelligent enough to detect and correct every possible error automatically. Run rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs filename1.rpm filename2.rpm ... on the packages you want to reinstall. Be sure to take official packages for Fedora Core 1 and not any other ones.
