Seems to everything is working fine with me but it should install 0:18.104.22.168-1 since yesterday. do you experience this problem again ? Seem it was related to a mirror not synchronized yet.

Thank you for taking a look. I don't know whats going wrong on my system but it may be rpm DB corruption. For me, "yum update" consistently hangs at this point: Downloading Packages: (1/1): iwl4965-firmware-4 100% |=========================| 160 kB 00:00 Running rpm_check_debug Running Transaction Test and can only be killed with "killall -9 yum". Similarly, running "rpm -e iwl4965-firmware" hangs and can only be killed with a "kill -9 ..." (<ctrl>-c does no good). I've also tried removing all of the /var/lib/rpm/__db.00* files and running "rpm --rebuilddb" but after that any attempt to update or remove the iwl4965-firmware package results in an indefinite hang. I'm at a loss so I've added "exclude=iwl4965-firmware" to /etc/yum.conf and and going to ignore the problem -- unless someone has idea what the real problems is...?

Aha! I found the problem and it has *nothing* to do with iwl4965-firmware. It turns out that I had a "hung" NFS mount and running "strace rpm ..." showed it consistently hanging on that mount: stat("/net/192.168.1.101/share", <unfinished ...> I don't know why rpm needs to look into all mounted filesystems but in any case I'm happy to know what was going wrong here. :-)
