$ man yum

Most  command  line  options can be set using the configuration file as
well and the descriptions indicate the necessary  configuration option
to set.

-d [number]     Sets  the  debugging  level  to  [number] - turns up or
                down the amount of things that are printed. Practical
                range: 0 - 10
-e [number]     Sets the error level to [number] Practical range 0 - 10.
                0 means print only critical errors about which you must
                be told. 1 means print all errors, even ones that are
                not  overly  important.  1+ means print more errors (if
                any) -e 0 is good for cron jobs.

So try "yum -d 0 -e 0 "

I guess I missed that in the "man" listing. I'll let you know when the next updates occur. Too bad yum can't detect a non-terminal output device and ... oh well ...
