when i said
# rpm -ivh yum-3.2.8-1.src.rpm
i got
warning: yum-3.2.8-1.src.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 69886cc7

Hello:

Before I can offer any corrective action can you tell us which version of Fedora are you using ?

Hmm, this might be worth a try too.
su
rpmbuild --rebuild yum-3.2.8-1.src.rpmThen try installing the rpm that built from that.

Hello:
FC6 is no longer officially supported, just to inform you.
That being said.
Try to do a make uninstall of the .tar.gz file of the file that you already installed.

If that works, then try a yum rpm from a still available F6 repo and see how that goes.
e.g.
http://limestone.uoregon.edu/ftp/fedora/linux/6/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/yum-3.0-6.noarch.rpm
Once it's downloaded, try installing it with
rpm -Uvh

make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'. Stop.
