Hello i am new here. anyways here is my problem i did some updates in FC9 126.96.36.199-45 i386 and well i rebooted and then tried to recheck for updates and it give me this.
@localhost ~]$ yum update
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
/usr/lib/librpmdb-4.4.so: undefined symbol: _!lock_ve
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:
2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jun 15 2008, 18:24:51)
[GCC 4.3.0 20080428 (Red Hat 4.3.0-8)]
If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
this is the output after i do:
[root@localhost ~]# python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jun 15 2008, 18:24:51)
[GCC 4.3.0 20080428 (Red Hat 4.3.0-8)] on linux2
