How about when yum seg faults and leaves the rpm db a "messed up" state
and you try yum again and it just hangs or loops?
Yes, killall -9 yum works.
I guess the real problem is the seg faults or whatever other reasons yum
needs to be kill.


Is the rpm db too big to be backed up every time yum starts? So at
least fixing such a problem would be easier?
