so first things first.
the most recent dailies are for systems running rpm 4.2 ONLY.

If you want a working yum on rhl 8.0 (which is rpm 4.1/4.0.4 based)

You should download yum 0.9.4

Then make sure librpm404 and rpm404-python is installed.

Things being broken in the dailies are, well, expected.

If it breaks under 0.9.4, though, I'd like to hear more about it.

That sound cool?
