Description of problem:
I have installed yum in ROSA 2012.1 Fresh but it doesn't.
For example, such command causes an error:
# yum search mesa
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in <module>
    yummain.user_main(sys.argv[1:], exit_code=True)
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 262, in user_main
    errcode = main(args)
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 88, in main
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/cli.py", line 228, in getOptionsConfig
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 863, in <lambda>
    conf = property(fget=lambda self: self._getConfig(),
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 295, in _getConfig
    startupconf = config.readStartupConfig(fn, root)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/config.py", line 872, in readStartupConfig
    startupconf.releasever = _getsysver(startupconf.installroot, startupconf.distroverpkg)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yum/config.py", line 1002, in _getsysver
    ts = rpmUtils.transaction.initReadOnlyTransaction(root=installroot)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/rpmUtils/transaction.py", line 180, in initReadOnlyTransaction
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute '_RPMVSF_NOSIGNATURES'

What should I do to get working version of yum?

yum is not supported by ROSA currently. Parts of yum-utils are used in some of our projects, but we do not ship it in any working state. That is one the reasons it is in contrib.
