Yum suddenly stopped working
 
Hey, I run a dedicated server I use for game servers, I needed to install WINE for something, so I tried yum install wine, that didn't work. So I decided it might have just been a faulty package, I downloaded the source for WINE and compiled that, it then errored with /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext. Which I was told was cause I didn't have X11 installed. Yum once again failed to install the specified program. Since then I've tried installing loads of random stuff, it always gets stuck at
Code:

yum install xorg-devel
Loading "installonlyn" plugin

It continually hangs at that until I kill it, it gets stuck using 0% CPU, and about 4.x % of the RAM available. (out of 512Mb)

Any solutions, I really can't carry on without yum :(

Try yum clean all first then yum install 'whatever'
