Description of problem:
This morning (7:30 AM US Pacific Standard Time), I attempted to do a full yum update of my system. This was unsuccessful, as a dependency for openoffice-core was not found.

I then updated tomboy (via yum update tomboy), and the procedure went as expected. I then did a 'yum clean all', followed by 'yum upgrade'. Yum downloaded the files (primary.xml.tar.gz), and after this step, yum froze. Performance of the system dragged considerably, I was able to log into tty1 and kill the python process executing yum. Trying a few other ideas, yum eventually hung the system, requiring a reboot.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute 'yum update'

Actual Results:  yum hangs

Expected Results:  yum should update the system, if possible and necessary.

The same problem here too. After some research though it seems that it's an
sqlite's (version 3) problem. I have downgraded to sqlite 3.2.8 and yum and rpm
seem to work fine. I downloaded the package from a mirror that hasn't synced yet
to the main repository.

I am also not aware if this downgrade produces any other issues with some other
packages, but I guess it would be of less importance than a non-working yum.
