Unhappy OMG Yum just broke


First time i encounter this.. thought that those package managers don't make mistakes but i guess they aren't perfect...

I just updated my system using yum and now yum itself won't work saying:



[root@fedora DOWNLOADS]# 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 urlgrabber

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:
2.4.1 (#1, May 16 2005, 15:19:29)
[GCC 4.0.0 20050512 (Red Hat 4.0.0-5)]



I tried to manually reintall the yum package yum-2.4.2-65.rhfc4.at.i386.rpm
and the python-urlgrabber-2.9.6-1.2.el4.rf.noarch.rpm
but it didnt help... i think i'm lost

Try
# rpm -q urlgrabber
from a terminal to see what version you have installed. then do the same for yum

Try not to use the ATrpms repo with other repos; I see that it has taken over your Yum package and probably others.

you shouldn't. you downloaded urlgrabber?

rpm -U urlgrabber
or
rpm --force urlgrabber

warning: python2.4-2.4-1pydotorg.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 95ccbcff
error: Failed dependencies:
libcrypto.so.4 is needed by python2.4-2.4-1pydotorg.i386
libdb-4.2.so is needed by python2.4-2.4-1pydotorg.i386
libssl.so.4 is needed by python2.4-2.4-1pydotorg.i386

How can i go around this problem without yum?

Thank you for your patience.
