No module named rpm - Centos 4.5


Hello,

I have a server running centos 4.5 and am having some issues with yum and python. I think yum was partially installed and then there was an attempt to reinstall it.

I tried to execute the command "yum update" and received the following error:

# yum update
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

No module named rpm

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:
2.3.4 (#1, Dec 11 2007, 05:27:57)
[GCC 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-9)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq

rpm -qa | grep yum yields:
yum-2.4.3-3.el4.centos
and

rpm -qa | grep python yields:
mod_python-3.1.3-5.1
libxml2-python-2.6.16-10.1
rpm-python-4.4.2.3-18.el5
python-2.3.4-14.4.el4_6.1
python-devel-2.3.4-14.4.el4_6.1
python-urlgrabber-2.9.8-2
python-sqlite-1.1.7-1.2.1
python-elementtree-1.2.6-5.el4.centos

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

It wasn't our intention to install a version 5 rpm. Someone probably wasn't paying attention.

Yep, that is probably all it is.

You'd normally not be able to install the el5 version without errors so you'd probably want to review internal procedures. There may be other such rpms installed in the wrong version creating odd little quirks, you may be well advised to audit the package list. Had software been installed by yum, this would not have happened.
