broken yum - "No module named yum"
After installing python-posd my yum stopped working. Every time I try to use it I get this message:
Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
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:
2.4.2 (#1, Mar 4 2006, 13:45:50)
[GCC 3.3.6 (PLD Linux)]
If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
I've uninstalled the python package and uninstalled and reinstalled yum via rpm but nothing seems to work. Beyond that, I have no idea what to do.
OS: Fedora Core 5
Any help would be appreciated,
it'll most likely be down to version numbers and such. I'm not too familiar with the versioning heirarchy that python uses, but i've been bitten with a yum version needing python 2.3 but i had python 2.4 installed. each version has it's own directory tree, so the files are not found. if you do an "rpm -ql yum" you'll see where the files are actually going, and how that relates to the version of python you have. at worst you should be able to force a reinstall of python and yum from the fedora core os (both of cd or both off an online repo) and you shoudl be ok.
thanx, I'll try that and see what happens
