Thank you for your help . To this end , I tried as the followings :
"
[root at mss-1 tmp]# rpm -Uvh yum-arch-2.2.2-2.el5.kb.noarch.rpm
warning: yum-arch-2.2.2-2.el5.kb.noarch.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY,
key ID 3e13cf5b
Preparing...                ###########################################
[100%]
        package yum-arch-2.2.2-2.el5.kb is already installed
[root at mss-1 tmp]# whereis yum
yum:
[root at mss-1 tmp]#
"
Can you please let me know why the yum is still unavailable?
