Seems like a real problem with Pirut (the default graphical package add/remove
tool), and not a package review request. Fixing.
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2006-08-10 07:21:47 EDT
your description about other things being usable. Do you want to control the
amount of bandwidth used by the software updating system?
Comment 3 Ian 2006-08-10 07:53:02 EDT
Yes that would be ideal.
Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2006-08-10 15:58:01 EDT
The auto close issue is already reported in

Thanks Rahul, I did do a search but obviously not thorough enough. 
The problem with selecting multiple programs for install or removal is the 
amount of time/bandwidth consumed. (From what I've been able to find Pirut 
doesn't have a pause/resume function). Which means once started that's it, 
unless I want to play frozen bubble or something I just sit and wait for it to 
finish before I can access the net again.
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-11 16:52:45 EDT
You can configure throttling in /etc/yum.conf -- see man yum.conf for the details

As Rahul says, the autoclose issue is bug 182499
