    yum eats up all the memory

    Hi,
    I'm running an almost fully upgraded FC5 (there were dependency problems with neon and openoffice.org-core so I couldn't upgrade neon, rpm, cadaver). Since the last update I'm unable to run yum (and the Software Updater GUI tool). After "sudo yum clean" another "sudo yum update" displays this:
    Code:
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Update Process
    Setting up repositories
    development               100% |=========================| 1.1 kB    00:00
    livna                     100% |=========================|  951 B    00:00
    extras-dev: ################################################## 3/3
    extras-development        100% |=========================| 1.1 kB    00:00

    yum stops here, and starts to consume all the available memory until it eats up everything and the whole system dies. "sudo yum list" does the same: it eats up all my 640 Megs of memory.
    Any ideas on how to fix yum?
    Thx.

    You need an older version of sqlite. This is a known issue. See https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedo.../msg00122.html.

    And the story of tracking it down to sqlite: http://nasrat.livejournal.com/42829.html

    Thanks, it worked. Now all I have to do is to wait until updates of "hal", "avahi" and "gnome-power-manager" come out because they fail to start now (they were OK after the DVD install).
