Re: Specifying How Yum Downloads Updates

In Fedora 10, it looks like yum downloads updates in ascending order on the size of the package. So all the small packages download first, and the large packages like openoffice download last. In Fedora 11, that is how it started out. But now yum appears to be downloading packages alphabetically by package name. That means if package "a" is very large it will still be downloaded before package "b" which is quite small.

I'm using Fedora 11 Beta just about 100% of the time now.

How can I get yum to download in ascending order on the size of the package? I love getting all the little downloads first. That is most of the updates, leaving only a few large packages to do at the end.


the download by pkg size behavior was changed precisely b/c of how many raving complaints we got about it.

Seems like we can't win.


And the first person to say "well then make it an option" gets told to stop talking until they're maintaining the code.
