I tried to install yum based on http://www.wallpaperama.com/forums/how-to-install-yum-problems-installing-on-linux-redhat-fedora-commands-t471.html.

my current python is 2.4.6, red hot fedora core 6, 4.1.1-28, RPM 4.4.2. I tried with the yum 3.0.1 version for my current server configuration. There is no configure file on 3.0.1 so i used make install command. All files complied without error.

If I run #rpm -q yum it says "package yum is not installed".

Whats the problem here on the yum installation?


Well, if you install yum manually by compiling it manually, it won't be added to the rpm database. It will hence not be displayed in the rpm -q comand.
