Using yum update to install kernel-devel hangs, CTRL+C gives a post scriptlet error.

When I did a yum updated which installed numerous packages including a new
kernel (2.6.12-1.1456_FC4), it hung after installing the kernel-devel package.
I waited a few minutes, and pressed CTRL+C at which point it gave me the
error: %post(kernel-devel-2.6.12-1.1456_FC4.i686) scriptlet failed,
exit status 0
Stupidly, I didn't try it again but yum update worked fine after I removed the
installed kernel-devel packages.
Trying to install it on its own afterwards succeeded.
whilst it seems like it 'hung', it was probably running hardlink against any
other kernel-devel packages you had installed. The more you have, the longer it
Fair enough, I did have about 8 installed... :)
