I run FC5 and am a *novice* Linux user. When running yum, I like to keep a record of what happened as well as watch the progress on the screen, so I pipe yum to tee. For example: "yum groupinstall xxx | tee xxxinstall"
This works as I expected except for one thing.
At the tail end of the yum processing, something like the following should be displayed:
Install 18 Package(s)
Update 1 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)
Total download size: 125 M
Is this ok [y/N]:
This indeed gets written to the file (e.g. xxxinstall). But the line "Is this ok [y/N]:" does not get displayed on the screen. However, if I enter "y" or "N" on the keyboard anyway, yum proceeds to completion.
Why isn't the line "Is this ok [y/N]:" being displayed?
