[root localhost downloads]# rpm --verify yum
S.5....T  c /etc/yum.conf

I don't know what to make of this

Then:

[root localhost downloads]# yum -d 10
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

   No module named cElementTree

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:
2.4.3 (#1, Oct 23 2006, 14:19:45)
[GCC 4.1.1 20060525 (Red Hat 4.1.1-1)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
  http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq

which doesn't seem to achieve much
