yumBackend.py takes 100% of the cpu forever(?)
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:14:59 EST
Description of problem:
Sometimes, yumBackend.py fails in a way that it takes 90-100% of the cpu and never seems to exit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

yumBackend.py takes all the cpu and never exits.
yumBackend.py runs minutes not hours.

I'm pretty sure this is the metadata reget bug.
download this yum
and see if it goes away.
Thanks, updating as we speak. Will get back in a couple of days.
The bug has not occured since I updated yum. I suggest we close the bug, I'll make a new comment should the problem reoccur.
Thanks for the help
