It might be that your rpm database isn't quite right, try 'rpm --rebuilddb' and then see if you will run.

Does this system have the standard Fedora Core 1 python installation? Has anything been installed from other than a Core 1 distribution, and if so what?

I downloaded the ISO and installed with no problems, then the very next step was putting yum on the system. I put yum on there and it did not work!

Dunno, what happens if you do 'yum list' or 'yum update'?

[root@ns3 root]# yum list
Segmentation fault
[root@ns3 root]# yum update
Segmentation fault

Instantly!!

I don't know why this would happen on a fresh system. Should i try apt-get?

Check this out as well.

Segmentation fault
[root@ns3 root]# yum --help

What does that mean?

Hmm, it sounds like something on the system, perhaps a library, is corrupt.

Do you get an MD5 errors from and 'rpm --verify --all'?

Are you seeing any other "interesting" problems with this system? Given the failure  of the Fedora copy of yum I'm wondering if there's some sort of a hardware problem.
