Re: F8 to rawhide upgrade - yum python mismatch - repeatable

After upgrading yum, yum won't run any more.

I had a minimal F8 vmware VM, and yesterday intended to do a yum upgrade to get to rawhide. I installed fedora-release which gets me the fedora-development.repo and fedora-release files.
I then tried a yum check-update, and saw the heap of updates.
Next I yum update rpm* yum*, which seemed OK.
After that yum didn't work anymore.
rpm was still working, so I upgraded groups of packages at a time.

I managed to kill it in this process by running out of disk space while upgrading glibc, and others ;( and now she doesn't run commands or boot, I'm going to try again to get the error message.


Ok that definitely sounds like an issue that needs looked at deeper. Upgrading rpm and yum first off should not break yum right away! Doing just yum works fine for an updated machine as I showed, but maybe the base versions of rpm and yum for F8 have issues with that update.
