Never use it ..
when u use --force , ur not allowing it to check for dependencies....... which are needed by it to run properly..
Try uninstalling yum
#rpm -qa | grep yum
#rpm -ev yum_blah_blah
then try #rpm -ivh yum_xxx_yyy.rpm
see what it needs to install properly.. get those rpm's and install them first..
from what i learned (learned from cbt nugget video) i thought rpm -ivh --force was the normal way to install an rpm. ima do what you said and see if it helps, thanks.
i know rpm -q means query, but what does the a and |grep mean?
