Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 174264
cannot interrupt or terminate yum gracefully
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:53:01 EST
Description of problem:
Yum never responds well to being interrupted by ^C or killed by a SIGTERM.
It usually doesn't stop at all. When downloading, it will abort one transfer
and then move on to trying the next mirror as if the user interruption had been
a network error. It usually is suspendable with ^Z, and then killing it
gracefully never works either. I have to kill -9 it every time.
This is a very poorly-behaved program.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every version I have ever seen.
