When using Yum to update a system, is there any way to tell yum to download more than one package at a time? If, say, there are 15-20 packages to update, it would be nice if yum could do the download asynchronously instead of synchronously and then, once all of the downloads are done, install the packages in the appropriate fashion. If yum can't do that are there any other updaters for Fedora that can?
If you just want to babysit the system during the actual package
installs but not the downloading you can:
yum install yum-downloadonly (unless this has changed in recent
versions), then
yum --downloadonly update (which you can mostly ignore until it
completes), then the final
yum update
will proceed quickly since it already has the packages.
