I have a problem.  I recently upgraded (from ISOs) to Fedora Core 4
from FC3, and now whenever I run yum, I get the following error:

[root at mjumbewu ~]# yum grouplist
The yum libraries do not seem to be availableon your system for this
version of python  2.4.1 (#1, May 16 2005, 15:19:29)
[GCC 4.0.0 20050512 (Red Hat 4.0.0-5)]
Please make sure the package you used to installyum was built for your
install of python.

Some info that might be useful:

[root at mjumbewu ~]# rpm -q yum

[root at mjumbewu ~]# rpm -V yum
S.5....T  c /etc/yum.conf
..?.....    /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/repomd/__init__.py

[root at mjumbewu yum-cli]# pwd
[root at mjumbewu yum-cli]# python yummain.py grouplist
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "yummain.py", line 23, in ?
    import yum
  File "__init__.py", line 21, in ?

    from _rpm import *
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/librpmio-4.4.so: undefined symbol:
[root at mjumbewu yum-cli]#

Any ideas?
