root      4494  4270  9 17
:16 ?        00:00:20 /usr/bin/python -tt /usr/libexec/yum-updatesd-helper --check --dbus
root      4625  4591  0 17

You can wait. Your system restarted; that's just the auto-update doing a check. Or you can kill it, your choice. And isn't this the same ancient RHEL system you've talked about in other threads, that you're not paying for support on? Since you're not paying for updates, the yum should stop pretty quick.

I'm sure the part answering about Yum is very much appreciated.

Yum is not unique to RHEL.

Please stay on point with the thread question.

Remember the LQ rule to not post unless you have something constructive to say, as well as the rule about personal attacks.

First, I did stay on point...the OP has other threads where they specifically say they're using RHEL, and an old version at that.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...um-4175612351/

There were zero personal attacks, merely a statement (which is true), that if you're not paying for RHEL and/or the version of RHEL is not supported any longer, any yum checks SHOULD be over very quickly..since they won't be able to do anything.

I said nothing nasty, and attacked no one.

If someone has an old version of RHEL which they may have once paid for however no longer pay for support, this is their business and I do not believe that RedHat will consider them to be in any violation, just that Redhat will not provide support for them unless they choose to pay for upgrades.

The OP did not cite in this thread that they are using RHEL, and in spite of their former questions, as well as their profile showing RHEL, specifically calling a user out referencing their posting history, not related to this question, is not something which should be done in this thread as well as any other thread the OP creates. That would be the definition of a personal attack.

If you feel the OP's posting history is not in line with LQ Rules, then use the Report button. If you feel the OP is circumventing LQ Rules and would like to discuss this with the site admins or Jeremy, then us the Contact Us link or the Report button.

Absolutely correct, and this applies to their RHN subscription, and goes back to my point about the yum auto update ending quickly.

The OP is circumventing nothing, and as you said, it's up to them to use whatever they want. I, however, DID NOT personally attack anyone, nor was I nasty to anyone. The OP posted just yesterday about trying to install an lsblk utility via yum on an old, unsupported version of RHEL. To make the leap that this is the same system doesn't take much.

Further, the OP is most welcomed (and encouraged), to read and follow the "Question Guidelines", and provide these missing details, if I have assumed incorrectly, and this is a different version/distro of Linux. The OP asked a question, and I responded with two correct answers...as you said, I 'stayed on point'. No matter if they're using RHEL, CentOS, Fedora, or something else that uses yum, either waiting or using kill will work. Sorry to seem argumentative, but I didn't attack or insult anyone, nor did I post off topic.

I think lsblk is part of the util-linux package.

Again, sorry, but no. You can download OEL 5.5 for free, but without purchasing you can't access the online repositories. And it doesn't matter if you're using it for learning or whatever...the same rules apply. You can also download SLES and RHEL for free...but again, you have to PAY to get access to certain features. And OEL 5.5 is still old.

Did you try running "yum whatprovides */lsblk" to see what package it's in? It's probably in util-linux-ng...so "sudo yum install util-linux-ng". And you can also run "repoquery --whatprovides */lsblk" to query ALL your configured repositories for that package.

..and again, did you do the repo query? And is this thread a duplicate of your other thread, since it (apparently) is dealing with installing lsblk? And again, your system is OLD...this package may not even be available.

You aren't providing any real details here, and continue to ignore the fact that unless you PAY FOR what you're using, you don't get access to those repos.
