There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/cElementTree.so: undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_DecodeUTF8
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:
2.4.1 (#2, May 3 2005, 17:14:18)
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)]
If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
I've been using yum with virtually no problems for a year. As far
as I know (!) I havent changed any settings related to character sets,
in fact I dont even know how to check.
P.S. Apologies for the stupid subject line, I sent the email before I wrote anything descritive in there!
