i have another post on another forum but i have not got any answers yet to fix the problem so i going to post here.
here is a link to my original post if you want a background of whats going on
but ill still explain my problem. i was looking for a video converter to install and i found one but then when i tried to down load it i needed to install python 2.5 so i found the .rpm and i installed it now when i go my add/remove software it will not open because
enlightment was not ale to rum application /user/bin/pirut,
and when i go to the terminal almost everything i type in it ill get an error
/usr/bin/python: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.5.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
i got the rpm from http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/26
... c7.ppc.rpm and the link is the exact rpm that i installed
and yes i do have additional repos/protectbase.
and when i enter "# rm /usr/local/lib/python-2.5" as root i get
[root@localhost micah]# rm /usr/local/lib/python-2.5
rm: cannot lstat `/usr/local/lib/python-2.5': No such file or directory
when i enter whereis python-2.5 i get
[root@localhost micah]# whereis python-2.5
and i also tried whereis python-2.5-12 and i get
[root@localhost micah]# whereis python-2.5-12
i was looking in the other folders and i did find python2.5 without the - so what i did is i went to the terminal and entered "whereis python2.5-12" and what i got was
[root@localhost micah]# whereis python2.5-12
python2: /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/python2.5 /usr/bin/python2.5-config /usr/lib/python2.5 /usr/lib/python2.4 /usr/include/python2.4
i notice i have two versions which for 1 doesnt seems right to me so would that be causing the problem?
but ok so i did a little of playing around with most of the python files/folders, and i replaced them with new folders from the ydl 6.1 dvd just to see what would happened and when i go to add/remove software i get
unable to import modules. maybe your're not running under x?
and when i run the terminal as root and just enter yum i get
[root@localhost micah]# 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 rpm
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, Aug 20 2008, 15:15:35)
[GCC 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)]
If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
any ideas of how i can fix that or whatever?i have had linux for a long time and everything was working fine until i tried to install the python rpm. even when i enter gedit i get errors.
