Why pirut and yum are slow and sometimes not responsive?

The package manager is slow in fedora.
In debian it is very fast.

If you search the Forum you'll find maybe a thousand posts that have the same topic/explanations. It's in the way yum/apt/smart is implemented in Fedora. There are tools to speed it up a bit but not to the extent that Debian's is. Here's the explanation: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/yum Personally, I just start yum on one desktop, then move over to another and do some work while waiting for it to complete. Really, we're only talking seconds to a few minutes here; most times you'll be on the machine for far longer than that.
