Running centos linux version 5.5. When I click on the "Applications->Add/Remove Software" option, the window fails to come up. I have internet connectivity and the firewall is disabled.
When I do a "sudo yum list updates" from a terminal window, it completes successfully.

When I run pirut from the command line I get the following error messages:

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

Unable to import modules.  Maybe you're not running under X?
