How long does it hang after you get the running transaction line? It would be a better guage to help us out; as some transactions can take a fair bit of time to complete....

Not to mention, everyone has a different idea of what amount of time it takes before labeling something as actualling hanging....

Well, the longest I let it be is I think for about 3 hours, ctrl+c has no effect btw, it doesnt' even cancel.

You could try simply downloading the package and then installing it with "rpm -ivvh ..." It may work, and if not it should give feedback about where it gets stuck. The "vv" makes it very verbose, "v" may be enough.
