got a slow yum operation?
July 1, 2008
Do you have an operation in yum that you consider slower than it should be? Do you want to help us determine what you mean when you say ‘yum sucks, it is slow’? Then try these things:
1. run yum 3.2.14 or higher
2. run your yum command like this:
time echo “n” | yum -d3 [your command here] | grep “time:”
3. run it again.
4. save the output from a couple of runs.
5. post the results in a pastebin with some info on the machine you’re running it on (cpu, memory, etc)
