Yum Package Manager Crash

Post by cabernet »

I have found yum to be a good solid, easy to use package manager, so I thought I would install it in FRESH.
Unfortunately it fails as per the log below. Any suggestions on how to remedy this crash ?

# yum search mesa
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in <module>
yummain.user_main(sys.argv[1:], exit_code=True)
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 262, in user_main
errcode = main(args)
File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 88, in main

startupconf = config.readStartupConfig(fn, root)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/config.py", line 872, in readStartupConfig
startupconf.releasever = _getsysver(startupconf.installroot, startupconf.distroverpkg)

Yum is not the ROSA and/or Mandriva rpm manager,
I fear it would be rather difficult that will be fixed...
