FC4: Uninstalled python mistakenly - Yum too
 
Hi

I have Fedora Core 3 installed and I was trying to upgrade to FC4. In trying to get rid of a "Missing Dependency" issue, I unwittingly uninstalled python and all subsequent dependencies. I now realized yum's gone too. What is the best way to reinstall python ? I can't find yum or apt-get.

Thanks,
ObeseSpiderman

Whoa,whoa,whoa! Apt-get?! H...how did you install apt on FC? OMG!
And really: I see two ways: reistall FC4 "by hand" while leaving you /home partition untouched or get a decent distro. No really. FC4 is a well known troublemaker here. 40-60% of trouble come from FC4.

BinJajer look into apt4rpm that is where you can read all about apt-get on FC :study:

Back to the problem. Do you still have the install discs? why don't you just reinstall the packages you need from that? try to re-install yum, if it complains about depends, install them. Keep doing this until you can install yum.

Bosewicht,

I don't have the install discs. This is a work PC that I have inherited - it was installed off the network. But is FC4 really not worth upgrading to? I thought of upgrading from FC3 because I saw that FC3 is not being officially supported anymore. I use Suse at home and I can try prevail on our sysadmin to install that.

Thanks.

FC3 is _NOT_ worth even having. If you are new, install Debian or Ubuntu/Kubuntu. There is apt, there is help, there are no problems. Just do it!
