We have been using yum on our Fermi Linux 7.3.1(RedHat 7.3 based) release
for a while now and all is good.
We are in the process of migrating from autorpm to yum for our Fermi Linux
7.1.1(RedHat 7.1 based) release. I was yum updating my desktop recently
and had lots of problems with yum just sucking up the memory. The memory
problem happed during the "Checking dependencies" phase. So far I have
found that if I upgraded the rpm libraries from the 4.0.2 series up to
4.0.4 the memory problem seems to have gone away. I mention this because
the original version of the rpm libraries for RedHat 7.1 were 4.0.2 . So
my suggestion is to use at least the 4.0.4 libraries.
I know this is not about RedHat 7.2 but thought that others would like to
know about this issue.
