I am a Linux noob, so I try to get apache and PHP running for my websites, then I leave my Linux server alone, and it just works, no complaints.
However, this time, I am working with a Network Solutions VPS, and it has no utilites pre-installed like yum. I'm trying to install these utilities, but the problem seems to be that all the instructions are for different distributions of linux or for a different version of FC. The latest instruction, on http://www.wallpaperama.com/forums/how-to-install-yum-problems-installing-on-linux-redhat-fedora-commands-t471.html - leads to this error.
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: 2.4.3 (#1, Oct 1 2006, 17:59:36) [GCC 4.1.1 20060928 (Red Hat 4.1.1-28)]
Everything was good till I got to the line ./configure - apparently the newer version of yum doesn't have this directory??
Is installing a program completely different for every version? I'm actually just trying to install APC for PHP caching, but everything I've read says yum is best for this...
Can someone point me in the right direction?
Update: I'm looking through my directories, and I see /yum.repos.d, how can I install it from there?
Crap readme says run "make install" if you're a masochist, which is exactly what I did :( What does make install do in this case...
