I've just installed yum-2.0.1-1mdk.noarch.rpm on my Mandrake 9.2 system.
 When I run it, I get the following:

[root at osage tmp]# yum list updates
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Mandrake 9.2 base
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 60, in ?

  File "keepalive.py", line 143, in do_open
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/httplib.py", line 777, in getresponse
TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'method'

### FWIW, httplib.py is  from package python-2.3-3mdk ###

[root at osage tmp]# rpm -qf /usr/lib/python2.3/httplib.py

Any suggestions on what I need to change to move forward?

Thank you.
