    Hey Guys,
    I tried out a team and they failed. I tied everything I know and hit many forums to no avail.
    I cant run a Yum update I get this message.
    root@secure [/etc]# arch
    i686
    root@secure [/etc]# yum update
    /usr/bin/python: error while loading shared libraries: requires glibc 2.5 or later dynamic linker
    root@secure [/etc]# up2date
    /usr/bin/python: error while loading shared libraries: requires glibc 2.5 or later dynamic linker
    root@secure [/etc]#
    root@secure [/etc]# rpm
    rpm: error while loading shared libraries: requires glibc 2.5 or later dynamic linker
    If you think you can fix this send me a quote. This is a Centos 4.4 server with cpanel
    Thanks for your help and ideas.
    -Pete

    What version of python is installed?

    Did you attempt an upgrade to RPM or Python recently?

    root@secure [~]# python -V
    Python 2.4.3
    root@secure [~]#

    I just installed that again as I thought that might help.
    Still same issues.

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/yum", line 22, in <module>
    import yummain
    File "/usr/share/yum/yummain.py", line 22, in <module>
    import clientStuff
    File "/usr/share/yum/clientStuff.py", line 18, in <module>
    import rpm
    ImportError: No module named rpm

    Python version should be 2.3.4. glibc 2.5 is not built on el4 normally thus causing newer versions to break. If you need new software, first consider upgrading your OS to 5.4 or revert python back to 2.3.4 before you decide which direction to take if you were to pay for assistance.

    RPM version should be 4.3.3 and you'll need 'rpm-python' (ImportError: No module named rpm) installed as well.

    Hope this helps!
