Tired of waiting for 'resolving dependencies' on centos 3.x because of yum 2.0 ? Thanks to danieldk, yum-2.4.3 is available for centos 3 , as well as the newer yum-metadata-parser plugin. At the time of writing, it's only available in the [testing] repo, but you can enable it temporary and switch back to normal behaviour once that you've upgraded yum. BTW you'll have to clean up your /etc/yum.conf because newer yum will use CentOS-Base.repo sitting in /etc/yum.repos.d/ and so both centos repositories will be listed twice, which is not a real problem but a little bit annoying though ... My CentOS 3.x boxes now rocks .. :o)
