Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have Fedora Core 6 installed in my computer. When i switch on my computer, my yum seems have problem. Therefore, i try to type yum install in the terminal and i found out the yum command is not found.
During the boot time, the screen display that the python modules have some problem but i don't know what rpbolem is it.
Thanks in advance for any help or recommendations.
Your help is greatly appreciated by me and others.
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").
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.
