Yum is not creating partial files
Hi all, first question ever, hope someone can help.
I'm running yum (2.2.0-0.fc3) with yumex (0.31-1.tla.1.FC3)
I'm doing an upgrade of my system and everything seems to be going well except for one small thing:
The dowloaded files are being saved in /var/cache/yum/updates-released/packages/
but the files are not being saved with .part extensions as I would normally expect. This means that if I lose my internet connection, or have to interrupt the process for other reasons, any files that have not completed downloading, begin again from the start the next time I run the upgrade again. IE: it's not resuming downloads.
This is not so bad with the small files, but for the BIG files it's a real pain.
I know that APT resumes all partially downloaded files by using the .part extensions, but I've never taken notice if YUM does the same thing.
Is YUM meant to resume interrupted downloads?
If it is meant to, can anybody think of a reason why this could be happening?
Thanks in advance.
