Not sure where to file this, as it's a combo of sudo, yum, and
selinux.  I guessed policy.

Note:  I hit <ctrl>-c toward the end of this run, hence some of the latter

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-05-07 21:06:35 UTC
yum needs to be run from the role "sysadm_r".

sudo su -
yum update

is one way to achieve the sysadm_r role. There is
sudo -r sysadm_r yum update iirc, check the man page.
