I, stupidly, uninstalled Python (I was having trouble with it for something else I needed) and didn't realise Yum needed it. So when I tried installing Python with a Yum command of course it didn't work.
I've managed to reinstall Python, and am now trying to get Yum working again but to install the Yum RPM I need some other dependencies installed, however one RPM needed is elfutils-libelf
I'm trying to install elfutils-libelf using the following command:
When I run that command I get the following output:
error: Failed dependencies: elfutils-libelf = 0.97-5 is needed by (installed) elfutils-0.97-5.i386
Seeing as that's the RPM I'm trying to install, it doesn't make an awful lot of sense, to me.
I ran the following command and got the following output:
rpm -qa | grep elfutils-libelf
So it looks installed.... I've tried uninstalling it to reinstall it but there's other dependencies preventing me from doing that.
My knowledge on Linux is very limited, so forgive me.
I ran the following command:
wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/elfutils-libelf-0.97.1-5.i386.rpm rpm -i elfutils-libelf-0.97.1-5.i386.rpm
And got the following output:
file /usr/lib/libelf.so.1 from install of elfutils-libelf-0.97.1-5 conflicts with file from package elfutils-libelf-0.97-5
