Yet another one of my many stupid question ... Again, here in South
Africa ( still tring to setup a proxy for my internal servers ), yum
runs in the daily cron, if I remember correctly ... The problem I am
seeing on busy days, is that yum might fail somewhere and just sit in
memory ... leaving no other yum processor to run ... I normally only
find this out if I am the sys admin or when I tring and run yum myself
... Is there some really clever and neat way to get yum to stop during
office hours, and then again start after hours? I believe this will
really only work to when urlgrabber which yum uses and recover failed
downloads ... Can anybody shead some light on my problem, or should I
just wait until yum 3.0.0 which will even know what I want to install
before I do?
P.S. Just showed a friend yum, and now he thinks Linux is it ... it's
kewl that I was able to download quite a few games to proof my point ...
