Tips and Tricks

"Yum halts if there is any dependency problem within the repository to 
be safe and doesnt perform partial updates. Use this script if you 
want that. Kindly ensure that you report any dependency issues to the 
appropriate repository bug tracker or post to the relevant project 
list if it requires more discussions."

for i in `yum list updates |cut -f 1 -d " " |grep -A 500 -e Updated |\
grep -v -e Updated` ; do
       echo "Updating $i"
       yum -y update $i
   I put the script in /<user>/bin and made it executable, but I run 
it as root. I've been using it for sometime to update rawhide daily 
since 'yum update' has become a problem. Often needin to run it 
several times to get all the updates.  I've just now 
installed 'yum-fastestmirror', so I'll see tomorrow if that helps 
with the mirror situation.
