installing Yum

Recommended Posts



I just got a vps, running on CentOS 5. However, it's just on minimal install. Yum isn't even there. So I download a few .rpms on the net (by following an instructions online), install them.. Now when I run Yum it gives out an error message like below.


There was a problem importing one of the Python modules

required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:


No module named cElementTree


Please install a package which provides this module, or

verify that the module is installed correctly.


It's possible that the above module doesn't match the

current version of Python, which is:

2.4.3 (#1, Mar 14 2007, 18:51:08)

[GCC 4.1.1 20070105 (Red Hat 4.1.1-52)]


If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to

the yum faq at:



I've been googling on this, yet no luck. Anyone here who knows what's the issue here and what's the fix for that? Thanks much.
