You can reinstall your system. During the installation process there's a point when it asks you if you want to register with RHN.

Re-installation

Hi,

I really appreciate all your responses since I started this thread.

I am just worried about my installation number when I re-install my linux(30Day-Eval)version.Do I have to get another installation nuber or keep the same installation number while re-install the RHEL-5?
Ps:Any idea why I am getting an error message while I am trying to follow that URL to register my system that "installation number can only be installed by the installer".

thanks in advance.

Don't worry about it, in the worst case scenario you can always apply for a 30-day licence from another email address and you'll get another one.

Or you can just switch to centos repositories.

Re-installed the Cd's

I have re-installed the CD's and connected to the RHN at post installation and now everything is working.
I think what caused all the problem was when I previously installed it,I installed it with minimum softwares and I was trying the internet connectivity using my Netgear wireless adapter(which never worked!!!).

This time around I tried with ethernet cable and selected the option CUSTOMIZE NOW for the s/w installations.

everything is working now!!!
thanks.

Siv

A simple google search produced this:

Next time just save us all a lot of time and use Centos to start with. Centos is just RHEL with the logos removed.

Unhappy Same Problem

Hi there,
I have the same problem, with this strange yum error, I'am a RHN registered user, and the system is a 2.6.18-92.1.1.el5xen red hat enterprise 5.

Googling with the error, I've found that installing a package named epel should remove the problem, but actually it didn't (even after restarting the yum-updatesd service).

I noticed this problem after updating the kernel to this version.

This is what i get when i do update:

Quote:
# yum update
Loading "security" plugin
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?

data = pickle.load(pcklAuth)

return Unpickler(file).load()

dispatch[key](self)
File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/pickle.py", line 894, in load_eof
raise EOFError
EOFError
Ah, since this computer works also as a server the option reinstalling the system is not in consideration
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks in advice

Use your RH registration. This is what you are paying for. Please post back what information they provide for those of us who cannot afford the registration.

Question

Unfortunately my account does not comprehend the telephonic help, but just the updates (as the phone lady said) which I can't obtain because yum is messed up. That's life!
Nevertheless after a huge googling, I've found out several issues with the same output error (fedora ,redhat and centOS), and basically are all related to a conflict between rpm and yum.
What i did was to rebuild the rpm database, and update one by one all the yum-related rpms. Now it seems that there's a conflict between yum-3.2.8.9.el5_2.1 and a plugin yum-rhn-plugin. This emerges after the reinstalling of yum packages. Now I don't really know what to do because yum, without this plugin works , but has lost the rhn repo file.
I also tried to downgrade the yum files, but this as a consequence, creates other problems.
Finally I also tried to build from source the yum-rhn-plugin with the obvious reappearance of the old problem.
Any Idea?

The lowest support level is the basic one.

Quote:
Basic Subscription Web support, 2 business day response, unlimited incidents
From: https://www.redhat.com/wapps/store/c...1MMOvQNg.www02

So, again please contact RH. If you do not have a RH subscription then that would answer why you are seeing this.
