Could it be that you didn't try to run yum as root? Try entering "which yum" and "locate yum".

Look at the dmesg output, the /var/log/messages log and if you have it, /var/log/boot.msg or /var/log/boot.log. I'm assuming that a message during bootup will be logged.

If you have your installation cd you'll find the yum package in Fedora directory

sudo rpm -hiv yum.****.rpm will install it.

Alternatively you can download it from here http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...s/Fedora/RPMS/

First:

There are two different terminals in FC6, if you go to main menu/system and click on "Terminal", you may not have super user advantages with this terminal. Try issuing commands from the 'Super-user terminal' by going to main menu/system/more_applications/Terminal_Program_Super_User_Mode. I have found that many root commands from the normal terminal will result in the "Command not found" error you ran into. (Probably because I was in the Super User terminal when I set the background to trasparent and selected "Save as default").

Second:
If that does not work, to install from the DVD, change directory into it with this command (just copy & paste it into super_user_terminal if you have 64bit, for 32 bit, replace x86_64 with i586):

cd /media/FC-6\ x86_64\ DVD/Fedora/RPMS/

Then install the correct rpm file with command similar to what axelfc mentioned.
You probably need to install "yum-3.0-6.noarch.rpm, and yum-metadata-parser-xxxxx", replace the xxxxx with what is appropriate.

When it is accessing the data base, it can take a while to get the latest lists from all the repos, the more repos you have the longer it can take to get the lists. These lists change once or twice a week, so they have to be re-downloaded when they change, they are "date stamped", when you have the latest lists according to the date stamp, it will be faster.
You should wait until it is finished and the prompt comes back before issuing yum commands.
