Description John Ellson 2009-10-01 14:20:08 EDT
Description of problem:
yum-complete-transaction should have an option to iterate over all outstanding transactions.

If yum has been failing, e.g. from a cron job, there can be many outstanding transactions to clean up.  It would be a lot less painful if there was an option on yum-complete-transactions to iterate over them all in an unattended fashion.

Bonus points for doing it efficiently, perhaps by iteration the transactions in one pass, and updating the rpms in a single merged pass afterwards.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-utils-1.1.23-3.fc12.noarch

the best bet is to run: yum-complete-transaction --cleanup-only 

but you can also go into the /var/lib/yum dir and remove the files manually.
