Re: yumex error on start-up

root cannot install yumex;
Generally under the user carries out yumex, inputs the root password confirmation again, may renew.

Re: yumex error on start-up

How do you start yumex? Do you go to Applications->System Tools->Yum Extender, or do you start it from a terminal?

Re: yumex error on start-up

Applications->System Tools->Yum Extender,the yum gui won;t even start,
but from terminal it starts and after loading suddenly backend not running error will appear
is there any difference between the 2 ways of starting yumex?[COLOR="Silver"]

Re: yumex error on start-up

AFAIK, the only difference is that the terminal allows you to see those error messages.

Re: yumex error on start-up

Hi z99,
If it helps, I run yumex on the command line in Fedora 11 and it works. I ran a command that might help you:
Code:
root@bmicek ~]# ps -ef | grep yum
brian    24018 21928  0 21:21 pts/5    00:00:00 /bin/bash /usr/bin/yumex
brian    24019 24018 24 21:21 pts/5    00:00:02 /usr/bin/python /usr/share/yumex/yumex.pyc
brian    24020 24019  0 21:21 pts/7    00:00:00 /usr/bin/yumex-yum-backend 2 True False
root     24021 24020  0 21:21 pts/7    00:00:00 /usr/sbin/userhelper -w yumex-yum-backend 2 True False
root     24025 24021 80 21:21 pts/7    00:00:08 /usr/bin/python -E /usr/share/yumex/yumex-yum-backend 2 True False
I am not familiar with how yumex works, but it sounds like /usr/bin/yumex-yum-backend is your problem. Can you see if you have it? Here is some more stuff that might help:
Code:
[root@bmicek ~]#  /usr/bin/yumex-yum-backend
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, protectbase
:started
:ready
Code:
[root@bmicek ~]# /usr/bin/yumex-yum-backend --help
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, protectbase
Usage: yumex-yum-backend [options]

Options:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit
[root@bmicek ~]#

Re: yumex error on start-up

Re: yumex error on start-up

Not unless you know exactly what you're doing. Do you know what type of argument __init__() is supposed to get or why 'ayum' is wrong? If not, you're likely to do far more harm than good.

Re: yumex error on start-up

Hello,

what happened with this topic, it seems to be dying...
I have exactly the same problem, this is what happens when I try to start:

# yumex-yum-backend
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/yumex/yumex-yum-backend", line 61, in <module>
my = YumServer(debuglevel, plugins, offline, repos)
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yumexbackend/yum_server.py", line 208, in __init__
dscb = DepSolveProgressCallBack(ayum=self)
TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'ayum'

PLEASE help to solve that really annoying issue!!

Thank you!!
