Thumbs down Not able to run "YUM" command

Hi all,

am not able to run YUM command. whenever i run yum command i gets below mentioned message ;-

# yum install yum-plugin-versionlock
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

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:
2.4.3 (#1, May 24 2008, 13:47:28)
[GCC 4.1.2 20070626 (Red Hat 4.1.2-14)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:

Please advice.....i need to install TFTP server....ASAP

it might have something to do with using RHEL4 (Red Hat 4.1)
rhel4 did NOT ship with yum
it was a afterthought to back port it to 4 when it was included in rhel5

also yum is VERY VERY( yes bold)dependent on the LAST yes the VERY LAST rhel4.9 python update
that version MUST BE USED !!!!


HOW did you install yum on this very old RHEL4.1 box
The RHEL4 series is now in " Extended Life Support "
the standard support for RHEL4 ended a few months back

this IS why you are paying for the REQUIRED support contract

contact your support rep

----------- edit from searching the op's OTHER posts ----------
is this still the unpaid for rhel5.3 from the other posts ???

if so buy the license
or install centOS 6.3
