Is there a way to tell rpm to go off and search a specific repo?

no. Rpm only acts on specific packages.
If they are not installed 'yum install packagename' should pull them
in - and you can list both packages in one command.

Except that he is trying to install yum. ;)
tried rpm --whatprovides yum but that evidently is not acceptable!
It's not apparent from the help file, but I think the command is 'rpm
-q whatprovides ....' but I don't think that would have helped in
this situation. I'd try

yum install pygpgme python-iniparse yum

No yum installed there for him. ;) Dave: Try the following:
rpm -ivh
http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os//Packages/pygpgme-0.1-8.fc9.i386.rpm http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os//Packages/python-iniparse-0.2.3-3.fc9.noarch.rpm

All on one big long line. ;) Not sure if there are further deps, but hopefully that will get yum installed for you.
I've been following this since it got posted trying to determine if it is a local problem to Dave or if there is, in fact, an issue with PackageKit updates on F9 (I think Anne used the phrase "dirty electricity" which I took mean nothing wrong with the current F9 updates).

Just trying to verify before I power up my machines to do some work and, presumably, accept whatever updates are available via PackageKit or root/yum.
