I don't know if i understand you right, in what situation do yum fails ??.
* A new version of yum is not working on the system (SOLUTION: Fallback
to earlier release )
* Yum fails because of network problem (SOLUTION: Fix the network
problems and try again)
* Yum fails because of corrupted metadata. (SOLUTION: yum clean all &
* Yum fails because of wrong information i repo files. (SOLUTION: Fix
the repo files)
I only remember one time where yum was not working, and it was because
of a broken pysqlite in Rawhide (Pre FC5).
But it was on a bleeding edge system, so it is supposed to break :-).
Yumex is another issue, it's a gui and it depends a lot of callback from
the yum api to make the gui responsive.
There is lot of things there :-))).
