So what happened when you installed these?

Hi Anne,

any suggestions on an address from which to attempt to install them with
RPM???
No, but 'rpm -qi pygpgme' and 'rpm -qi python-iniparse' both tell me that
they were provided by Fedora Project.  I can only suggest that you might
have a mirror problem?

python-iniparse was updated on the 12th December, so is it possible that
some glitch during that upgrade caused your problem?  Dirty electricity
sounds a far more likely culprit than packagekit.

Anne
My results:

[Dave localhost ~]$ rpm -qi pygpgme
package pygpgme is not installed
[Dave localhost ~]$ rpm -qi python-iniparse
package python-iniparse is not installed
[Dave localhost ~]$

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

If they are not installed 'yum install packagename' should pull them in - and you can list both packages in one command.
I
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

Ahhh, "now there's the rub" according to Shakespeare -- yum got scoffed as well! All I appear to have working in the package management department is rpm....
(The
joys of trying to learn a new system!  20 years ago, I had great battles
with the hard copy manuals.......)

Strange things go wrong when you are first learning, and sometimes it's hard to know why, but you should soon settle to it, once you get this sorted out.

Anne


Again, many thanks for your help

Dave
