If at least yum could include reusme support like wget

I'd second that request, it's the one thing I miss from apt-get and is a lifesaver for someone like me with a dial-up connection. Every time I lose my connection, I have to restart a file - in this file's case restart a file that takes 11 hours to download.

And I'll third it. My shop box spent about 12 hours today trying to get that file, failing in most cases from an md5sum error in a packet header someplace, and eventually I ctl-c'd it. Then I added that file to the exclude statement, but then yum apparently couldn't call home anymore. Ping times to downloads.fedora.com were in the millisecond range all during this time so I fail to see where the errors were being generated. ifconfig's reports were sparkling clean of any error.


Seeing my two hour kick-off time for dial-up makes it impossible to
get some files in one go, I often let up2date or yum download
smaller stuff, then wget the larger rpms (eg OO.org or kernel), copy
them into the appropriate spool folders, and run yum or up2date again
to install everything.  Seems to work so far, but a little too much
work for what should be an automatic system.
