apt-get is lost in the provcess.

What I did was:
 1.	rpm -e yum
 2.	rpm -Uvh http://atrpms.net/dist/fc3/atrpms-kickstart/atrpms-kickstart-25-1.rhfc3.at.i386.rpm
 3.	apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

By now you have a working apt package but have lost the yum capabilities
as yum will not install due to some unclear dependency:

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  yum: Depends: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages but it is not installable
       Depends: Requires: but it is not installable
E: Broken packages

So if Axel could verify why it will not work we may be back in business.

The following line in the SPEC file is puzzling me:

Requires: Requires: %{python_libdir}
