I was trying to add some repositories but was only getting errors with every single repositoriy I added to the yum config file, So I tried deleting anything that I added and it still was broke when trying to use yum it would always check a different mirror and fail, well anyways thats old problems. I removed yum and wanted to reinstall it, so I downloaded the YUM rpm straight from fedora's ftp server. After the install of the RPM, I run Yum from the terminal and this is the error that I get:
[xxx@LinuxBed ~]$ yum
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 22, in ?
ImportError: Bad magic number in /usr/share/yum/yummain.pyc
This file is some type of python file that I cannot view because it is object code. Is there anyways I can start all over, and how would I go about this? I have Yum files scattered all over and its a real mess, have I fubared my yum possibilities for good?
A couple other questions:
How do you remove packages that install with RPMS from the terminal? I know with yum you can remove things because it keeps track of what has been installed, is there any way of doing this if the RPM was installed from the terminal with RPM -i command?
How come the forum does not subcribe me to my own threads I make? It makes it hard to keep track of them because I have to bookmark everything instead of using my user profile page that is supposed to list them?
Sorry I'm such a
