Good impressions:

yum is faster, package kit is just seeing advantages from that. If you

3.2.12 and 13 are much faster than others. Measured as such, in fact.
What are you seeing as 'glacial'?
hours on this:


Hours doing What?

What command had been run? 3.2.13 is faster than 3.2.12 but nothing like hours.

One of these:
yum --disablerepo=development upgrade
yum upgrade
yum --disablerepo=development upgrade
yum --disablerepo=rawhide* upgrade
yum --disablerepo=rawhide* upgrade --exclude=*xine*
yum --disablerepo=rawhide* upgrade -
yum --disablerepo=rawhide* upgrade
yum --disablerepo=rawhide* upgrade --exclude=*xine*
[root potoroo ~]#

Note that I have a mirror of development and use that; it's on the wrong side of a wireless link, but has to be better than pulling off the Internet through the wireless link.

Looking at my logs:
[root potoroo log]# grep -H yum-3 yum.log*
yum.log-20080305:Mar 05 07:41:02 Updated: yum-3.2.12-1.fc9.noarch
yum.log-20080327:Mar 06 08:18:12 Updated: yum-3.2.12-3.fc9.noarch
yum.log-20080327:Mar 18 21:51:37 Updated: yum-3.2.12-4.fc9.noarch
yum.log-20080327:Mar 27 00:52:24 Updated: yum-3.2.13-1.fc9.noarch
[root potoroo log]#


I've been going through the logs and I don't see the evidence there, but then the cleanup phase isn't recorded.

For measuring this kind of problem, it would be useful for yum to log
Startup commandline
Changes between processing phases
Elapsed time and result.

btw If the improvements are related to overlapping downloading and installing, probably I'd not benefit much there. If it doesn't hit the disks so much, I _should_ see quite a big improvement (but expecting to use my 2 Gbytes of RAM would be bad on some of my other systems).
