problem when run yum (No module named yum)
 
I have problem while run yum

Code:

# yum
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

  No module named yum

Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.4.3 (#1, Oct 14 2009, 01:52:50)
[GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-44)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
  http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq

and when import yum from python

Code:

# python
Python 2.4.3 (#1, Oct 14 2009, 01:52:50)
[GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-44)] on linux2

I see that there are files from Fedora 6 which are no longer suported.
Are you using centos or fedora and which version.

Centos

I have never used centos.
In fedora then as root
#yum update yum
updates yum
see http://www.fedorafaq.org/#installsoftware
Are you not using old software or from fedora 6 and fedora 5

@ flokip : CentOS 5.x is based on Fedora 6,
thus containing a few packages marked 'fc6'

"No module named yum"
.. I do not know any module 'yum.py'.

If yum is trashed it may not be able to reinstall itself.

May be replace manually with the command # rpm -Uvh <package>

> > yum packages, example i386 address
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.3/os/i386/CentOS/
updates
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.3/updates/i386/RPMS/
.. but no 'update's for yum*
