Yumex won't execute.
 
Fedora-18-arm

trying to start yumex I get a error message;

Backend not running as expected
Yum Extender will Terminate
--> exit code: None

No additional info was in /var/log/messages.

Yum from the command line runs normal.


I ran yumex-d and got this;

if this is not solved yet

What did you last do before the gui stopped working
and have you tried reinstalling it

Code:

su -
yum remove yumex
yum install yumex
or
yum reinstall yumex

Replacing Yum and Yumex did not help. Still same problem.

There are several bugzilla reports concerning yumex / similar errors to yours. I have an F18 box running but I'm not at that desktop. Using SSH I logged in and installed yumex. Then I logged out and logged back in to try yumex remotely.
PHP Code:

ssh -X glenn@enterprise
yumex 

Got this:
PHP Code:

05:15:14 INFO Starting yum child process
05
:15:15 INFO YUMError executing command as another userNot authorized
05
:15:19 ERROR ERRORFatal Error backend-not-running
05
:15:19 ERROR ERRORCould not get polkit autherisation to start backend 

Yum Extender will terminate
05
:15:19 INFO yum backend process is ended
05
:15:19 INFO yum backend process is ended
Program Terminated 

Then I switched to root.
PHP Code:

su -
<
password>
yumex 

Ran yumex again with the --root switch as suggested in some of the bugzilla reports.
PHP Code:

yumex --root 

Yumex then worked perfectly.

This is not the way it should be and is not a proper solution. I guess my point is that there are several bugzilla reports about yumex. Those that I've read don't seem to offer a permanent solution, just workarounds.

I used the yumex --root command and entered root password but I still get the same error message.

mickeyboa 07-17-2013 09:00 AM

CORRECTION !!!

I logged in as SU and entered password, then I ran yumex --root and it worked.

Thanks very much for the tip, I guess this will be the way I will have to run Yumex until they get it fixed.
