    Rawhide Yum/Python problem

    Hi everyone

    I wanted to test Rawhide on one of my computers, and after updating some programs such as yum and python yum is not able to work. When I run yum I get the following error:

    [root@localhost ~]# yum
    There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
    required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

    /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/_sqlitecache.so: undefined symbol: g_assertion_message_expr

    Please install a package which provides this module, or
    verify that the module is installed correctly.

    It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
    current version of Python, which is:
    2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jan 7 2008, 12:52:59)
    [GCC 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-36)]

    If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
    the yum faq at:

    Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    Well Tuna,
    I don't know if you have fixed the problem by now, but anyway seems there are many that face the same obstacle, so:
    go to
    and download the rpm (i assume you are up to date and use fc8(there are other packages there just try))
    2.open it with archiver find and extract _sqlitecache.so
    3. use the command (from the extraction point) #cp _sqlitecache.so /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/_sqlitecache.so
