Okay - I'm having a real hard time warming up to linux. I am desperately trying to install yum, which is supposed to come with Fedora Core 6, but apparently it didn't for me.
I have python 2.4.1, a little reading shows yum 3.0.1 is the version for me. So I get it, untar it, and use the make command as instructed.
Now when I use a yum command, I get
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)] If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to the yum faq at: http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq
Okay? That was worthless. there is no yum? or Python is missing a module? Probably no yum because missing the module, but which one? Some one says "Install it from a rpm" - well, how do I do that? I'm thinking I need to uninstall yum?
UPDATE It looks like Network Solutions VPS is trying to stimulate support revenue by going out of their way to provide the most out of date configuration they can. Not only are they running FC6 - but YUM was somehow removed? Upon trying to install it, I received this...

Theoretically, if I install all of these packages, it will work, right?. Should I be concerned about the NOKEY?
