Description of problem:
Yum supports a "max_connections" parameter, which allows the user to tune the maximum number of simultaneous downloads.
Although DNF supports parallel downloads, I see no means by which the user may *change* the maximum number of concurrent downloads.
Such a feature is desirable, for example, on flaky or unreliable network links. In these cases, it's useful to set yum's max_connections=1 to maximize the number of packages that have been downloaded completely and cached before the link goes down.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always (this is a feature request).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install foo
Progress meter indicates that two packages are being downloaded simultaneously.
Upon setting a dnf configuration parameter, the progress meter should confirm that 1 (or 3 or ... ) packages are being downloaded at a time.
dnf-1.0.2-2.fc22,hawkey-0.5.9-2.fc22 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 22.
Thank you very much!
I can confirm that this works for me when setting max_parallel_downloads=1 in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf .
