Please kindly remove the python2-pysqlite dependency. It is older than its upstreamed version in Python 2.7's stdlib.

Two dependencies are missing:

  • python2-rpm
  • python2-pycurl

I was able to install this package, but I had to do some mods.

1) Pre-reqs: (besides those already there, may be obtained through pacman -S)

- pyenv (asdf is an alternative)
- yay
- paru

2) add these to .zshrc:

export PYENV_ROOT="$HOME/.pyenv"
command -v pyenv >/dev/null || export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"
eval "$(pyenv init -)"

3) Pre-install python2 and other dependencies by:

pyenv install 2.7.18
pyenv shell 2.7.18
sudo ln -s $HOME/.pyenv/versions/2.7.18/lib/python2.7 /usr/lib/python2.7
yay -S python2-rpm python2-pycurl python2-six

4) Install yum using paru:

paru -S yum --assume-installed python2-pip
sudo ln -s /etc/yum/yum.conf /etc/yum.conf

We had to use paru because "--assume-installed" is not working properly on yay at the moment.

5) Now add the following right after "import sys":


(If this part fails, substitute that $HOME variable for the actual path, like "/home/username/")

By doing this, you will then get a 'yum' fully working.

Next, you will need to add a repo, but I haven't found any that we could use here on arch.

Btw, the command "yum-config-manager" is missing, perhaps not properly symlinked.

Hope my findings help somehow.

@prg don't worry, I'm not here to be trolling you or anyone else.

Also it wasn't me who wrongly flagged this package as out-of-date.

prg commented on 2022-02-25 15:16 (UTC)

@MarsSeed. Right. And this is version 3.4.3. The package is up to date. Please stop flagging it...

Just because a tool is old doesn't mean that it stops working. By that logic, everyone should uninstall openbox immediately, but oh wait - it's a package in [community]...

@prg sure, if you live in the past. :)

Latest yum v3.4.3 release date: June 28, 2011.

Missing dependency: urlgrabber.

joaquinito2051 flagged yum out-of-date on 2021-06-28 for the following reason:

Yum obsoleted.

This should not be marked out of date. Yum is still functional and the best tool for certain scenarios. Please stop flagging pacakges out of date because you don't have a personal use for them. Yum 3.4.3 is the latest version of yum. Until a new version of yum is released, please stop flagging up-to-date and functional yum and other yum related packages out of date.

Could you please add dependency to 'python2-rpm' package?
