Is this OK? (y/N)


i do not want to get rid of all that stuff, is there a switch for urpme that will allow me to just get rid of python?

well, iwould do

rpm -qa | grep pyhon

this will output he exact name of the rpm for python that is installed....


rpm -ev --nodeps thenthenameof.therpm.file

that will remove that rpm with out dependencies

but if you are using mandrake then urpmi will automatically update python to the newest version that is in your sources....


just do urpmi python and it will install a newer version if it exists...

yeah, when i do a urpmi python, it says everything already installed. i have version 2.3 installed, but i need 2.4

after the


[root@localhost riscphree]# rpm -qa | grep python


im going to have to delete: python-2.3.4-6.1.101mdk and python-base-2.3.4-6.1.101mdk to fully get rid of python correct?

That's not a good idea. All those things depend on python for a reason - they use python, they're built against the python 2.3 in MDK, and they won't necessarily keep working if you rip python out and replace it with 2.4. Do you really need to do this?


If you *do*, the command you want is:


rpm -e --nodeps python python-base
