echo $PATH gives:

So there is no python path.  I was about to no rpm -e --nodeps python but
does rpm not use python?
Is there any other way I can force python to reinstall?

Best regards,

The short answer is rpm doesn't use python. The long answer is you can always check dependencies with rpm (including rpm itself):

You can try "rpm -i --replacefiles python" but your previous stab using "--force" should have had the same effect (--force is the same as --replacefiles --replacepkgs --oldpackage). One other thing you could try is use the --relocate option of rpm to install python some place else (e.g., make a usr/bin under /tmp and install it there) and then manually copy the files to where they belong. Check the man page for rpm for more information.

Cheers,
Dave
