I'm trying to deinstall openldap. It is corrupt and I want to reinstall. How to do that using Fedora?
Following instructions found on the internet I tried
su -c 'yum remove openldap'
Unfortunately that command fails because it seems to be also the command to deinstall yum, which isn't allowed. I don't understand the syntax I must admit but I'm new to this (Fedora).
Is it possible to deinstall openldap? How?
Btw I installed using
su -c 'yum install openldap'

BTW, the output of remove openldap ends with
"Error: Trying to remove ""yum", which is protected."
So that led me to conclude that the command yum remove openldap is also the command to deinstall yum.

Turns out to be a major bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=476490
Can only be removed by risking your whole system. Sucks!
