Yumex crashes, Error value:No id element found, fedora core 9


hallo to everyone! suddenly yumex crashes. when I open it it starts to refresh the repos and at 40 % I get the following error**. If I open it with "yumex --noauto" option it starts normally and then I can refresh the repositories, but sometimes if I select all the repositories rawhide e.t.c it stacks to infinity. Yum works perfectly no problems at all only yumex has that strange behaviour i have all ready reinstall yumex, but without changing anything in python. I don't know if something has changed in the repositories and causes that thing. If anyone can help I would be gratefull.thanks.

I'm having the same problem. Just started yesterday. Yumex is the only way I do updates and I do them manually so I doubt this was because of an automatic change. Suggestions from a python pro would be helpful. I know little to nothing about Python. I suppose now would be a good time to start, eh?

Hmm, I just noticed that this seems to be a problem going on since the latest Fedora updates so looks like Yumex got borked by some Python updated. Yumex guys should know about it. I'll check and if they don't then I will file a bug report if possible.
