Question No module named rpm centos 4 yum


Hi all,

I have some problems with my server,

I treid to install bigbrotherbot for my gameservers, only i removed a the python package, what yum is using.

I have googled all the time but no solution found.
I get this error, while using the command yum :

Code:
No module named rpm
If i do the following command:

Code:
rpm -qR yum
Ill get the following output:

Code:
/usr/bin/python
config(yum) = 3.2.8-9.el5.centos.2.1
python >= 2.4
python(abi) = 2.4
python-elementtree
python-iniparse
python-sqlite
rpm >= 0:4.4.2
rpm-python
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
urlgrabber >= 3.1.0
yum-fastestmirror
yum-metadata-parser >= 1.1.0
Rpm is installed, this is what i can see.
I have searced over this forum, but all the topics about this wont help me.

In my /bin/ folder i have a RPM file, so its on the system.
And in my /usr/lib folder i have a RPM folder with the following in it:

Code:
athlon-linux     macros          rpmdb_checkpoint  rpmdb_upgrade  rpmrc
config.guess     mkinstalldirs   rpmdb_deadlock    rpmdb_verify   rpmu
config.sub       noarch-linux    rpmdb_dump        rpme           rpmv
convertrpmrc.sh  pentium3-linux  rpmdb_load        rpmfile        rpm.xinetd
freshen.sh       pentium4-linux  rpmdb_loadcvt     rpmi           tgpg
i386-linux       rpm2cpio.sh     rpmdb_printlog    rpmk
i486-linux       rpmd            rpmdb_recover     rpm.log
i586-linux       rpm.daily       rpmdb_stat        rpmpopt-4.4.2
i686-linux       rpmdb_archive   rpmdb_svc         rpmq
Whats wrong up here.
Its a damm problem up here, i can use rpm normal without errors.

Thanks already.

well that's a python error, so it's not rpm itself it's complaining about, but the python module for it, which comes form rpm-python. try forcing a reinstallation of that rpm.

warning: group jeff does not exist - using root
warning: user jeff does not exist - using root95%)
warning: group jeff does not exist - using root

[root@g15 ~]# rpm -Uvh rpm-python-4.4.2.4-1.src.rpm
warning: rpm-python-4.4.2.4-1.src.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4ad653e1
   1:rpm-python
And its still not working..

I have that file downloaden and he tell me the following:

Code:
rpm -Uvh rpm-build-4.4.2-48.el5.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
elfutils is needed by rpm-build-4.4.2-48.el5.i386
Ok, lets download elfutils.

And then ill get the following error:

Quote:
rpm -Uvh elfutils-libs-0.139-1.fc11.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
elfutils-libelf-i386 = 0.139-1.fc11 is needed by elfutils-libs-0.139-1.fc11.i386
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.8) is needed by elfutils-libs-0.139-1.fc11.i386
libelf.so.1(ELFUTILS_1.3) is needed by elfutils-libs-0.139-1.fc11.i386
libelf.so.1(ELFUTILS_1.4) is needed by elfutils-libs-0.139-1.fc11.i386
elfutils-libs > 0.125-3.el5 conflicts with elfutils-libelf-0.125-3.el5.i386
Is this a source problem, because i downloaded for fc11, or do i mis something more.

also THAT FILE "elfutils-libs-0.139-1.fc11.i386.rpm" is for the TESTING/DEV fedora 11 .NOT for CentOS 5.2( current)

please install the 3d party centos repo files .and do not go blindly downloading incompatible rpm's
http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/YumAndRPM
http://www.centos.org/
http://www.centos.org/docs/5/
http://wiki.centos.org/
---------
try this in the terminal run
Code:
su - ( or sudo -- if set-up)
yum search rpm-python
-- if it finds it then --
yum install rpm-python rpm-python-devel
