Question Yum fails with "GLib-CRITICAL"


I'm trying to install or search anything with yum like yum install webalizer. But i get that error every time.

I searched it at Google but i can't find any useful solution.

Also I've installed the glib-2.14.5 by compiling, not with rpms. But couldn't fix.

Do you have an idea for this problem?

I'm using CentOS 4

Code:
# yum install webalizer

Question

Can you post the output of these two commands:

>rpm -qa | grep -i python
>rpm -qa | grep -i glibc

Cheers,

Solving the Critical error.

To solve the Critical error:

What I did was simple, and fixed the problem.

I reinstalled an older available version of yum. Quick fix. Search your box or download one.

I used:
rpm -i --force yum-2.4.3-1.c4.noarch.rpm

i for install
force to replace a newer one. mine was 2.4.4, the broken one.

Best regards

John Lace
