thks for suggestion - yes it included a kernel update - we tried to restore with live CD - no go. Now I have to get work done so can no longer mess around with Fedora.
this is the final straw with Yum - too bad, we really like Fedora and the RH open philosophy but Yum sucks so so badly that this is the final time we will use Fedora, Red Hat or CentOS (we have already switched our production servers to Ubuntu). I've pl;eaded about yum before - know others who won't use Fedora because of yum but it all seems to fall on deaf ears from the Fedora team.
It's really too bad that NIH applies here to the far superior apt-get. We can no longer afford the:
1) slow way it updates the update db
2) crappy slow mirrors
3) poor way, if any, to terminate a update (simple cntrl C doesn't do it - supposed to work with double cntrl C but often doesn't
4) now the way it has broken a system during an interrupted update is just untenable -
So until RH and Fedora someday wakes up and dumps or massively fixes yum, we'll be totally over on Ubuntu. We have no other business choice. RIP Fedora
