Re: yum broken :p



Quoting Barbara Pennacchi <b pennacchi istc cnr it>:

I had a similar problem once when I updated via yum/apt across versions.
The problem was, at least in my case, I ended up with multiple pythons
on my system.  For example:

% ls /usr/bin/python*
/usr/bin/python  /usr/bin/python2  /usr/bin/python2.2

(That's just an example).

Now, the first line of /usr/bin/yum is something like:

#!/usr/bin/python

Which may be pointing at the "wrong" python version.  So, to get it to work
for me, I changed that line to something like (this is from memory, so you
may have to experiment)

#!/usr/bin/python2

Try the above; it can't hurt, and if you are lucky it may help.

If my memory is correct, it was just as simple as changing the version
of python yum was using, as above...  But then, my memory may be off some,
so your milage may vary...
