Good Morning all,
I am new to Linux, as you can tell, so I am not sure how to do this or if is possible.
I started they Yum update in root log in. I miminized it and forgot it was running, I then logged out and to my reg user. I remember that the yum update was running, I logged back into the root log in. How do I display what yum is working on? What command is used in the terminal?
Take a look at /var/log/yum.log to see if the update process has finished. Then you can simply try to run the updater again, if another session of yum is still running it will warning you and refuse to start a new session.
