Description Graham Leggett 2006-04-16 06:26:55 EDT
An attempt to do this fails:

[root@gatekeeper rpm]# yum update > /tmp/out 2>&1  &
[1] 29203

Nothing is written to /tmp/out, so there is no clear indication that yum is
doing anything.

The only way to kill yum is with -9.

This works for me here.  You may be hitting the point where it prompts and it's
not flushing the output.  Try using yum -y.
