Question cannot install yum


Fedora Core 4, yum is not insalled on the server, so I am doing the following steps -

# rpm -Uvh yum-2.4.3-1.src.rpm
warning: yum-2.4.3-1.src.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 69886cc7
error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

/usr/src does not have a redhat or /redhat/SOURCES direcytory

I did not think this would fix the issue, but just in case it was that simple


# cd /usr/src
[src]# mkdir redhat
[src]# cd redhat
[redhat]# mkdir SOURCES
[redhat]# cd /homedir
[homedir]# rpm -Uvh yum-2.4.3-1.src.rpm
warning: yum-2.4.3-1.src.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 69886cc7
1:yum warning: user skvidal does not exist - using root
warning: group skvidal does not exist - using root
warning: user skvidal does not exist - using root)
warning: group skvidal does not exist - using root
########################################### [100%]
[homedir]# yum
-bash: yum: command not found


Any suggestions on getting this installed?

You are trying to install the source rpm. Use the binary rpm instead.

I've seen that posted as answers to other RPM installation issues on these forums and around Google. But I have not found a binary installation. I did see http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/download/2.4/ offers a .tar.gz file

Is this different then a regular .rpm file? or is this the binary installation package?

The .src.rpm is a source rpm.

The .tar.gz is a compressed, archival, compilable source (or whatever anyone else wants to call it).


Did you try Fedora Legacy for yum-2.4.1-1.fc4.noarch.rpm ? http://download.fedoralegacy.org/fedora/4/updates/i386/

Alternately, you can create a binary rpm from the source rpm using rpmbuild, but installing the binary rpm is easier to do.

8 rpm downloads later and many many searches...funny one of the sites did not work under Firefox, I had to switch over to IE7 to get their site to work at pbone.

rpm -Uvh python-sqlite-1.0.1-1.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm
warning: python-sqlite-1.0.1-1.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6
error: Failed dependencies:
libsqlite.so.0 is needed by python-sqlite-1.0.1-1.1.fc3.rf.i386


Any suggestions on getting an FC4 version of this file?

Just like before, from Fedora Legacy: http://download.fedoralegacy.org/fedora/4/os/i386

Sounds like you should read about The Fedora Legacy Project: http://fedoralegacy.org

Also, a reliable search method for rpms is: http://rpmfind.net

Finally got it done. Thanks

I would post the list of all the packages which spit out other parts needed but I am sure you all know that routine.

And to think this morning this all started because I was putting a theme on my wife's website which now uses WordPress

Is it better to take newer (FC5 or FC6)or older (FC3) or take the RHEL 4 bits if RC4 is not available?
python-urlgrabber-2.9.7-1.1.fc3.rf.noarch.rpm Wed 11 Jan 2006 98 kB Fedora Core 3 - noarch
python-urlgrabber-2.9.7-1.2.el4.rf.noarch.rpm Wed 11 Jan 2006 98 kB Red Hat EL 4 - noarch

Easy fix:

Code:
# rpm -Uvh python-elementtree-1.2.6-5.fc4.pyv.i386.rpm python24-elementtree-1.2.6-5.fc4.pyv.i386.rpm

Neither. If a binary for FC4 is unavailable, attempt to rebuild from the latest source rpm.

Code:
# rpmbuild --rebuild --recompile python-urlgrabber-2.9.7-1.rf.src.rpm
See the rpmbuild manpage for more details (near the end).

If successful, that will create a binary rpm. Watch the last few lines of output for the rpm location.

You probably need to install rpm-build and anything generating errors when you run rpmbuild.
