I'm a brand new linux user running FC5 small problem i'm having with the pirut software manager on gnome. Everything was running fine until i discovered the update manager when i ws trying to install a driver...so i updated yum, there were about bunch avalible and figured i should be ok to update it and proceeded. After updating when i accessed the add/remove software it gave me the following bug report
Component: Software Manager

Does anyone know of a way to rollback the yum updates or purge the yum files?
