yumex uses consolehelper to get a dialog prompting for the root password.
So /usr/bin/yumex is just a link to /usr/bin/consolehelper. Like most of the
system-config tools.
if you run a consolehelper appl with sudo, you will get the

Xlibb: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


Just run 'yumex' and you will be asked for the root password.

if you want to use sudo to start yumex, you have to type.
sudo /usr/share/yumex/yumex
