YUM - view progress / Verbose option
Posted on 2010-09-14
We run YUM 2.4.3 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4.
I need to determine if YUM is able to make a connection to the redhat.com servers.
I've tried the following:
yum -d 10 install screen
Yum Version: 2.4.3
COMMAND: yum -d 10
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Exiting on user cancel
But it just sits until I press Ctrl+C.
I've also tried to do: yum check-update
But it seems to do nothing, until I press Ctrl+C to exit.
Is there a way to do a connectivity check to determine whether it's a network or firewall related problem?
