Broken python2.6, yum... centos 6.9

Post by sandraTL » 2018/06/22 13:51:00

Hi,

I am really new with centos and I have seriously broken yum and I have no idea hwo to fix (I have been trying for 2 days already). I need help.

here is a few info that might help you help me

which python
/usr/local/bin/python

python -V
Python 2.6.6

Code: Select all

 
whereis python
python: /usr/bin/python2.6-config /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/python2.6 /usr/bin/python3.4-config /usr/bin/python3.4m /usr/bin/python3.4m-x86_64-config /usr/bin/python3.4m-config /usr/lib/python2.6 /usr/local/bin/python2.7 /usr/local/bin/python2.6-config /usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/bin/python2.6 /usr/local/bin/python3.4-config /usr/local/bin/python3.4m /usr/local/bin/python2.7-config /usr/local/bin/python3.4 /usr/local/bin/python3.4m-config /usr/local/lib/python2.6 /usr/include/python3.4m /usr/share/man/man1/python.1.gz

Code: Select all

 yum
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

   No module named yum

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:
2.6.6 (r266:84292, Jun 20 2018, 15:52:33)
[GCC 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-18)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
  http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq

Code: Select all

Code: Select all

whereis yum
yum: /usr/bin/yum /etc/yum.conf /etc/yum /usr/share/man/man8/yum.8.gz
when I run python and try to import yum :

Code: Select all

>>> import yum
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named yum
>>>
At one point I just wanted to remove python completely and reinstall everything fresh but I don't know how I can do this and not break it more .....

I really need help

Thank you in advance for your time

Your first step is to undo your source install. There's probably a `make uninstall` target to reverse the install. Once you do that you'll need to run hash -r to tell bash to dump its cache of where it found what executable or it'll carry on trying to run the one that just got deleted. If that does not fix the problem (and judging by all those missing files, I suspect it won't) then you'll need to download the packages from a mirror and use rpm --install to install them, possibly with --force to make it do it. Using rpm -Va should list out all files that are not in the state that rpm expects them to be - some of those will be expected like config files and can be ignored. For each file that's missing or marked as different in some way then you need to use rpm -qf /path/to/that/file to find out which package owns it, download that from a mirror and install it.
