http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Why on earth does yum take so long to finish checking for updates, or for that matter, doing anything at all? A simple command like yum check-update involves 4-5 minutes time, literally. Here's my example. Quote: yum clean all yum check-update blah.. blah.. blah.. .... koji-i386 | 2.5 kB 00:00 koji-i386/primary_db | 9.2 MB 00:05 rawhide/metalink | 14 kB 00:00 rawhide | 4.2 kB 00:00 rawhide/primary_db | 9.6 MB 00:06 <-- Hangs here for an eternity. rpmfusion-free-rawhide | 3.8 kB 00:00 rpmfusion-free-rawhide/primary_db | 297 kB 00:00 <-- Hangs here for an eternity. Seriously, what is it doing that takes so long? Database functions? This behavior is seen on a laptop (wireless) and a desktop (wired). (HowTos)
