    Hello

    I was trying to install this:

    Code:
    yum install pcre pcre-devel
    And this is what i get:

    Code:
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?
        yummain.user_main(sys.argv[1:], exit_code=True)
      File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 309, in user_main
        errcode = main(args)
      File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 178, in main
        result, resultmsgs = base.doCommands()
      File "/usr/share/yum-cli/cli.py", line 345, in doCommands
        self._getTs(needTsRemove)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/depsolve.py", line 101, in _getTs
        self._getTsInfo(remove_only)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/depsolve.py", line 112, in _getTsInfo
        pkgSack = self.pkgSack
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 661, in <lambda>
        pkgSack = property(fget=lambda self: self._getSacks(),
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 501, in _getSacks
        self.repos.populateSack(which=repos)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/repos.py", line 232, in populateSack
        self.doSetup()
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/repos.py", line 79, in doSetup
        self.ayum.plugins.run('postreposetup')
      File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/plugins.py", line 179, in run
        func(conduitcls(self, self.base, conf, **kwargs))
      File "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/fastestmirror.py", line 181, in postreposetup_hook
        all_urls = FastestMirror(all_urls).get_mirrorlist()
      File "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/fastestmirror.py", line 333, in get_mirrorlist
        self._poll_mirrors()
      File "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/fastestmirror.py", line 376, in _poll_mirrors
        pollThread.start()
      File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/threading.py", line 416, in start
        _start_new_thread(self.__bootstrap, ())
    thread.error: can't start new thread
    I think yum is broken and something is going wrong with python.

    Any ideas on how can i fix this?

    Thank you

    Try: yum clean all and then running your yum install again.
