I updated my x86_64 system this morning, and now when I go to run
yum, I get the following:
[root at f7-64 ~]# yum clean all;yum update

I tried downloading the yum rpm from a update mirror and re-
installing it, but this doesn't seem to have help.
Alot of other things are acting weird too [can't compile Nvidia driver].
I also installed the last 184.108.40.206 kernel that was listed in yum
before this all started to go wrong.
If I can't get this fixed by next week, I'll just install a fresh
copy of F8 on this system.
