yum-complete-transaction in yum-utils
December 11, 2007
This morning I checked in the rest of the code for yum-complete-transactions. For people running yum versions 3.2.7 and above you can use it pretty much as-is.
If you ever have a transaction abort in the middle b/c the power went out, rpm or yum fell over, your system locked up, your ssh connection died or any of a myriad of reasons then this may save your ass.
Grab it out of git here.
It takes the transaction-journaling I talked about back in august and makes it simple to use.
Just run yum-complete-transaction and it will attempt to finish out any transactions that were aborted in the middle.
of course, report bugs where appropriate.
