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

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.
OK, made that install work again:
$ rpm -qa yum\* rpm\* python\* sql\*|sort
rpm -qa|sort
[davidt localhost ~]$ yum --help
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/_sqlitecache.so: undefined symbol: g_assertion_message_expr

Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jan 17 2008, 11:02:11)
[GCC 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-36)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:

$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP Fri Dec 7 15:49:59 EST 2007 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

Is this a "silly" on my part / would a bugzilla be appreciated ?


Yes, python-urlgrabber should have been upgraded to fc9 as should the other python rpms. It looks like there could be a requires missing to get those to move up to the fc9 version. Did you see anything about that when updating python? Do you have the yumskipbroken plugin when doing that upgrade?
