Yumex Problems - Fails
 
fedora 18 / KDE

I have problems starting Yumex, something about backend not running.

Yum runs normal doing installs or updates.

Nothing shows up in /var/log/yum or var/log/messages when yumex FAILS.

you need to run it as root , and not as a normal user
Code:

su -
yumex

" su" will not work you need to use the " -"

su -
yumex won't run, it tells you it cannot be run as root.

It tells you to run command;

yumex --root #to force it to run and that is the only way it will run.

Try forcing as root. Login as root at the command-line, then:
Code:

yumex --root
See if that works.

That is what I said in my previous Post.
