I've found out that the newer yumex has a change that
greatly reduces cpu load (due to the sliding progress bar
not being drawn so much as in yumex 1.2.3). So I wanted to
try it out on FC6.

What I did was get the yumex-1.9.10-2.0.fc7.noarch.rpm
from the F7 testing repository and then try:

yum localupdate yumex-1.9.10-2.0.fc7.noarch.rpm

but it doesn't complete because my python isn't up to 2.5
"Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by package yumex"

My question is how hard is this to get working or should I just
forget it and wait until the new yumex come out for fedora 6
(or update my pc to F7), I'd like to avoid a domino effect
of dependencies

You could:

rpm -Uvh --nodeps yumex-1.9.10-2.0.fc7.noarch.rpm

That may or may not update/install yumex to the newer version because it would bypass checking for dependencies. Trouble is, even if that worked, it probably wouldn't run correctly due to the lack of proper dependency installation. Sort of like driving a square peg into a round hole. With a big enough hammer you can do it, but somethings gotta break in the process. I would take your own suggestion and:

As a follow up: I checked the fedora/development repositories and the only unreleased version of yumex in there is for f8. So don't hold your breath waiting for a yumex update for fc6 to bring it up to yumex f7 standards... it's probably not gonna happen.
