Re: Hosed yum



I ran into this problem aswell, and fixed it by installing python, rpm, and yum from the development tree.


[root DONut ~]# rpm -qa |grep --regexp="yum" --regexp="rpm" --regexp="python"
gnome-python2-2.6.0-4
dbus-python-0.22-12
rpm-python-4.3.3-8
gnome-python2-bonobo-2.6.0-4
redhat-rpm-config-8.0.32-2
python-2.4-3
libxml2-python-2.6.16-5
gnome-python2-gtkhtml2-2.6.0-4
rpm-4.3.3-8
mod_python-3.1.3-7
rpm-build-4.3.3-8
gnome-python2-canvas-2.6.0-4
rpm-libs-4.3.3-8
rpm-devel-4.3.3-8
yum-2.1.12-2
python-devel-2.4-3

Now when I try to run yum i get:

[rodd trevally packages]$ sudo yum update
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 6, in ?

ImportError: No module named rpm

I recognize this. I ran into it a little while back when trying to upgrade a box that had too little disk space to do it all at once. Turns out that somewhere in the RPM/yum stack there's an SELinux dependency that shows up at runtime. I don't really know what's going on, but at least for me it went away after updating libselinux. (Of course, since both yum and up2date use the rpm Python bindings and a simple "import rpm" in yum is what dies, well, they're both hosed at the moment so you'll have to download and 'rpm -Uvh' that package manually.)

Turns out we're not the only ones to hit this, it's in bugzilla:

Good luck,
