I removed the default python install from my linux using rpm command without removing the dependencies, I was trying to install 2.7 manually, which wasn't working out that is whay I thouht may be it was because of conflict, but it messed up, I am getting this error when I try to evoke python after reinstalling 2.6 again
Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix> Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix> Consider setting `$PYTHONHOME` to `<prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]` ImportError: No module named site
I have tried setting
PYTHONPATH but it doesn't work so well, I get the last error
ImportError: No module named site and also other programs like
yum don't function. What should I do? Also when I installed 2.7 I used
--libdir=/usr/lib64 to configure it.
My system is 64 bit, and I really need it back the way it was, what should I do? can it be solved by using linux rescue? Any help will be appreciated. I spent hours online reading the solutions from other users facing the same problem but it didn't help.
whereis command I found these:
python: /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/python2.6 /usr/bin/python2.6-config /usr/lib/python2.3 /usr/lib/python2.6 /usr/lib64/python2.6 /usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/bin/python2.7-config /usr/local/bin/python3.2m /usr/local/bin/python3.2 /usr/local/bin/python3.2m-config /usr/local/bin/python2.7 /usr/local/bin/python3.2-config /usr/local/lib/python3.2 /usr/include/python2.6 /opt/python2.7/bin/python2.7-config /opt/python2.7/bin/python2.7 /usr/share/man/man1/python.1.gz
What should I do? I can't live invoking python manually all the time when I am programming.
I am using Scientific Linux 6.3
