Description Ralf Corsepius 2003-11-04 01:17:16 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
yum can't be interrupted by <ctrl>c.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Get yourself a internet access (modem, ISDN etc) and try use yum.

The accidentially run a "yum update" on a somewhat outdated
Fedora/Rawhide installation.

Yum doen't show the size of downloads in advance to downloads, so
subsequent downloads can take an arbitrary amount of time and produce
arbitray costs.

Actual Results:  yum doesn't react upon pressing <ctrl>c.

Expected Results:  yum should be interruptable at any time.

^C terminates for me:
# yum upgrade
Unable to find pid
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Raw Hide Linux
Exiting on User Cancel

# yum upgrade
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Raw Hide Linux
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Finding obsoleted packages
Resolving dependencies

Yes there may be other conditions that are not interruptible,
but I sure don't remember seeing one in the last 6 months.

FWIW: I had been able to deterministically reproduce this with the
initial release of FC1. Meanwhile, after some kernel and/or glibc2
updates, this problem only occurs sporadically, esp. with badly
reachable or overloaded servers like download.fedora.redhat.com after
a kernel or glibc update.
