Run yum in non-caching mode???


Everytime I try to install something I get this message

"There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root."

Well I figured out what software is causing the problem, but I don't know how to run yum in non-caching mode. Can someone help me??? It'd be a great help.

See 'man yum.conf' for the "keepcache" directive and 'man yum' for the 'yum clean ' options?

I also should warn you that running Yum in non-caching mode probably isn't a solution (determine what the problem actually is), it's also inefficient and as such puts unnecessary strain on repo mirrors.

well then did you install the yum tools on fedora 17 ?
Code:
su -
yum install yum-utils
the error told you HOW to fix the problem
run" complete transaction "

see the yum manual
Code:
su -
man yum
--- and the help ----
yum --help
Code:
su -
yum-complete-transaction
to see the "auto complete" possible options
type in "yum" and hit the <tab> button twice
