    So did I just now, and when I was done, I tried to fire off yum to go
    bring it up to date. Silly me, I have exactly the same error I had
    for the last month after yum updated something on the FC1 system.
    The python and yum lists have seen this question form me before, no
    answer then, hopefully now there might be one.

    This is the error for yum:
    ---
    [root@coyote lib]# yum check-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/python2.3/site-packages/libxml2.py", line 1, in ?
    import libxml2mod
    ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/libxml2mod.so: undefined
    symbol: xmlByteConsumed

    This is the error for up2date:
    ---
    [root@coyote lib]# up2date
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 29, in ?
    from up2date_client import up2date
    File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py", line 36, in ?
    import depSolver
    File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/depSolver.py", line 4, in ?
    import packageList
    File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/packageList.py", line 17, in ?
    import up2dateComps
    File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2dateComps.py", line 7, in ?
    from rhpl import comps
    File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/rhpl/comps.py", line 5, in ?
    import libxml2
    File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/libxml2.py", line 1, in ?
    import libxml2mod
    ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/libxml2mod.so: undefined
    symbol: xmlByteConsumed

    And an "strace synaptic" falls over with this:
    ---
    open("/usr/lib/librpm-4.2.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
    directory)
    writev(2, [{"synaptic", 8}, {": ", 2}, {"error while loading shared
    libra"..., 36}, {": ", 2}, {"librpm-4.2.so", 13}, {": ", 2}, {"cannot
    open shared object file", 30}, {": ", 2}, {"No such file or
    directory", 25}, {"\n", 1}], 10synaptic: error while loading shared
    libraries: librpm-4.2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such
    file or directory
    ) = 121
    exit_group(127) = ?

    Which it should as librpm is now 4.3.so etc.

    Gee, I sure wish an upgrade didn't break more than it fixed.
