I'm new to bare-bones Linux systems and need to install postgres on a wind river Linux distribution. My plan was to install yum and then use yum to install the postgres rpm.
I've tried to install yum but am getting this following error: There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
No module named yum Please install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly. It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is: 2.7.3 (default, Dec 21 2015, 05:03:08) [GCC 4.9.1] If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to the yum faq at: http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq
There is only one version of Python on the system and it is Python 2.7.3 and is located at usr/lib/python2.7.
It seems like this error is usually due to multiple version of python being installed, yet I only have one. Does this mean that the version of yum I've installed(3.4.3) is for a newer version of python?
Should I continue trying to install yum and then postgres or use a different method to install postgres i.e. manually with the rpm files found here.
