packagekit update applet not updating


Ever since I upgraded from Fedora 8 to 9, the new PackageKit applet has reported updates available (and I can view them using the applet), but they won't install. The old Fedora 8 update software would bring up a dialog box asking for the root password, then install correctly.

I can update easily enough using yum on the command line, but it would be nice to have the new applet working. I haven't tried running the desktop as root, I'm just using it as an ordinary user (as before.)

I had figured this would be a common situation, but so far I've only turned up specific issues with packagekit related to packages I don't even have installed. Any info will be appreciated.

Paul

Open a terminal type su -> rootpassword> yum install yumex
My advice is that when yumex is installed remove packagekit.
