python hiccups


I just subbed to this list because I'm not finding any help on the yum

Here is the problem:
[root@coyote qt-x11-free-3.2.3]# yum update
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/yum", line 22, in ?
import yummain
File "/usr/share/yum/yummain.py", line 31, in ?
import yumcomps
File "/usr/share/yum/yumcomps.py", line 4, in ?
import comps
File "/usr/share/yum/comps.py", line 5, in ?
import libxml2
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libxml2.py", line 1, in ?
import libxml2mod
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libxml2mod.so: undefined
symbol: xmlByteConsumed

Both the yum install, and the python2.2 install have been checked and
verified, md5summed, you name it, but the error persists. The symbol
does exist in the named file too. The only questionable file in the
whole install is /etc/yum/yum.conf, because I've added a couple more
repo's to it. It worked with those additions several times, but has
not been able to run since the last update run well over a week ago

I see by your web site that 2.3 is out, should I install it? In which
case how many other packages will need replaced to satisfy

Cheers, Gene
