The problem

While trying to upgrade fedora i used this command

rpm -Uhv ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/12/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-12-1.noarch.rpm

to switch repos to install, only to find out later that i don't have wget installed (live version running) i then proceeded with yum install but any yum install i tried returns this:

totem-gstreamer-2.24.3-3.fc10.i386 from installed has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: totem = 2.24.3 is needed by package totem-gstreamer-2.24.3-3.fc10.i386 (installed) pulseaudio-core-libs-0.9.14-3.fc10.i386 from installed has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: libltdl.so.3 is needed by package pulseaudio-core-libs-0.9.14-3.fc10.i386 (installed) preupgrade-1.1.2-1.fc10.noarch from installed has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by package preupgrade-1.1.2-1.fc10.noarch (installed) sos-1.8-17.fc10.noarch from installed has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by package sos-1.8-17.fc10.noarch (installed) Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by package preupgrade-1.1.2-1.fc10.noarch (installed) Error: Missing Dependency: totem = 2.24.3 is needed by package totem-gstreamer-2.24.3-3.fc10.i386 (installed) Error: Missing Dependency: libltdl.so.3 is needed by package pulseaudio-core-libs-0.9.14-3.fc10.i386 (installed) Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by package sos-1.8-17.fc10.noarch (installed) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: package-cleanup --problems package-cleanup --dupes rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

What I've tried so far

curl "http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x855099B249C8885A" | rpm --import --verbose -rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

*rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db rpm --rebuilddb*

None seem to do anything, how can I restore the default rpm and get on with work? I don't have GUI access to this sytem, only command line, but downtime is not an issue

Upgrading Fedora can be a pain. The Fedora yum upgrade page walks you through all the options, including resolution of dependency problems.

You shouldn't need anything from rpmfusion to do the basic upgrade; I would disable the rpmfusion repository until you are on Fedora 12.

It seems you want to jump from Fedora 10 to Fedora 12. I'm not sure such an upgrade is tested. To restore yum I would reinstall the Fedora 10 release rpm

rpm -Uvh --oldpackage http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/11/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-11-1.noarch.rpm

And try to do the upgrade with preupgrade

yum install preupgrade

But you need free space on your disk
