I screwed up rpm and yum. How to fix this?

I ran 'yum update' on RedHat 7.1, but it took too long and I killed it.
Now rpm won't run anymore, giving the error message:

rpm: error while loading shared libraries: librpm-4.2.so: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

yum doesn't work either: 'yum update rpm' results in:

Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 22, in ?
import yummain
File "yummain.py", line 21, in ?
File "clientStuff.py", line 22, in ?
ImportError: librpm.so.0: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

I also cannot login anymore on my KDE desktop (GNOME still functions).
How can I install rpm or yum without using rpm or yum?

Janneman.

Janneman --> what do you mean by saying "but it took too long and I killed it." , was it not responding??? or u just killed it out of impatience ???.

Anyway .. i think by killing it u just didn't allow it to update all the req packages as a result u system has a lot of inconsistencies...

check this link out -->http://www.linuxdocs.org/HOWTOs/RPM-...x-HOWTO-4.html

that should give u an idea .. try compiling the rpm from source....


DreamCatcher -->

"Fedora Core 2 - x86_64 - Base" r u using the 64 bit version ????????

what is ur microprocessor ???? amd 64 ??


check ur yum.conf file

#locate yum.conf

#cat path_to_yum.conf [to see whats in ur yum.conf]

the following will tell u more about yum.conf


http://linux.com.hk/PenguinWeb/manpa...&name=yum.conf

http://www.brandonhutchinson.com/Upg..._with_yum.html


just google to get the list of fedora/redhat mirrors............

I killed it out of impatience. Stupid, but I expected it to continue where it left, or maybe start all over again.
Where can I find the rpm-source files (rpm-x.tar.gz) for RedHat 7.1?
