yum update on a new yum install fails

Reported by: guzzi Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: rpm Version:
Severity: Keywords:


When running yum update on a fresh install, os2base package will fail to install, looks like because of missing libc. When I first run yum install libc, and then yum update, it all works.

Also, yum install yum on a fresh install will fail, did not check why saw mesaage about wrong python version..

I can confirm this. Trying to cure, I renamed /etc, /usr and /var, then downloaded the bootstrap WPI and run it.
WPI installed fine, the WPS objects were created, but running "yum install yum" failed in python.

what was the exact failure? Please be a bit more verbose, as this could save us a lot time in searching problems.

Sorry, I did not note down the error at the time, and now I'm not able to reproduce it again. I tried on two partitions and this time in both cases "yum install yum" worked. But then again I got problems. I'm listing here exactly what I did this time on the test partition:

1) renamed /etc, /usr and /var, then run the bootstrap WPI;
2) "yum install yum" went fine, 58 packages installed;
3) reboot and created "platform" file in /etc/rpm. Content of the file is "pentium4-OS/2-OS/2";
4) run "yum update" and I got:

For me, this problem went away reordering LIBPATH. Please see
