Yumex failed to update because of a dependency resolution problem with empathy. When I tried again with skip-broken, yumex crashed:

Exception in Yum Extender
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/yumexbackend/yum_server.py", line 1361, in dispatcher
self.parse_command(args[0], args[1:])

el = (n, a, evr, repoid, size, alist)
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'alist' referenced before assignment

Trying 'yum update --skip-broken' didn't crash but didn't update anything - apparently all updates are broken for the moment.

On the positive side, after removing 'rhgb quiet' from the kernel command line to see what was taking so long, F17 booted in 14 seconds. Hmmm.

Thanks glennzo & tox - somehow I had the idea empathy was one of those things civilization depends on, but it didn't take anything with it when it left. I get grumpy without ... updates.

AFAIK, Empathy only depends on gnome-contacts an if you dont use that, there is no need for Empathy or gnome-contacts . ( though i could well be wrong with g-c )

thank you all in this forum, my fedora 17 was running really slow and sluggish after an update then I couldn't update any more because of this empathy thing. Hopefully it will go!

Empathy and Totem should be uninstalled by default :(
