LXer: Six ways to speed up Yum on Fedora

Published at LXer:

Iíve been using Fedora (Core and all) on and off for a few years now and its parsimonious attitudes to codecs notwithstanding, the thing that always reduces me to a whimpering, pleading wreck is watching Yum installing a piece of software. I can forgive its tendency to handhold and even to confabulate, but Yum moves with all the speed of a treacle flow at the North Pole. Apt-get has already done its stuff and gone home for tea but Yum is still setting the table and polishing the silver. Once youíve used Yum for a while you will know why it puts the V in verbose. Find out how to light a fire under Yum. Read the full article at Freesoftware Magazine.
