When pad things like this happen it is sometimes only a post or pre
install script that is hung.  Go to another console and use ps -Af to
try to identify what may have been spawned by the yum process via
rpmlib.  For example it might spawn something that somehow is hung
waiting for userinput.  If you identify such a thing, use the PID from
ps to kill it and your yum may resume.
