I got this error at the very end of a "yum upgrade" for a Fedora Core 1
system being upgraded to Fedora Core 2 Development. I guess the cause is
the upgrade from python 2.2 to 2.3 in the process, but wouldn't there be a
way to avoid this? Maybe importing the "select" module much earlier when a
new kernel is to be installed? Just a wild guess...

This is with yum 2.0.4, not the latest daily, in case this info is useful.
