Re: Yum - um...

I don't know, but I'm guessing because it writes to logs and the transaction 
set and things.

Just a guess.

I don't know if this one was already discussed to death,
but please bear with me...

Why is it that YUM can only be run/executed once, by one process,
by one user - whatever when all I am trying to do is to yum info <whatever>
while yum is busy doing something else.

I mean - why wasn't yum written so that it can take care of itself,
that is, it knows what is permissible and what is not permissible?

I somewhat understand if an update or installation is taking place (but
these operations could use transactions control) - but why not allow 
such as list or search or other non-intrusive operations while yum is doing,
say updates or installs?

Just wondered,
