Yum not working

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello all, I'm fairly new to linux and today accidentally deleted /usr/bin/python when trying to fix another python issue. Now yum (probably a host of other programs) won't work. I'm using fedora 16 and had python 2.7 installed. All other python related directories and files are still there so I downloaded and compiled 2.7 to a directory on my $HOME and the copied over the python executable to /usr/bin. This didn't work. Can anyone out there help? Thanks. (HowTos)
