Yum on Fedora Core 1

I installed yum-2.0.7-1.noarch.rpm


And this is all it does

[root@ns3 root]# yum check-update
Segmentation fault

Whats wrong??



default yum conf

[root@ns3 root]# cat /etc/yum.conf
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log

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.

[root@ns3 root]# up2date --help
Segmentation fault
[root@ns3 root]# yum --help
Segmentation fault


What does that mean?

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

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

It was a bad mother board and it messed up the install. I reinistall the OS and it fixed it!

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.
