Description of problem:

If I say "yum info libbsd", I get to sit and wait for a few minutes to find out that I have 94 debuginfo packages installed.

This seems to be much worse (in the sense of slower) on my F12 machine than F13, but it's counting either way.

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

Apparently I was comparing F12 to F14; sorry about the confusion.

I know "libbsd" isn't in any debuginfo repos., you know that ... yum, not so much :)

Off hand I can't think of how we can make this better. One problem you may be hitting is if you have some PK thing auto-updating all your repo. data (like yum-updatesd used to do), then you might be getting burnt by:

% fgrep auto-up /etc/PackageKit/Yum.conf
# default=rpm-warm-cache;remove-with-leaves;auto-update-debuginfo

...feel free to ask PK to fix their code instead of just disabling random plugins. You can also just run yum-updatesd, just to get the MD (or yum-cron) ... we'll probably eventually change yum-updatesd and/or make a cyum-updated, to do everything but the dbus stuff.

We've done a few speed improvements to yum between the above fc12 and fc14 versions, but I can't think of anything that would speed this up.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.
