Yum Timeout Slow Connection

For this particular situation the ISP (will rename un-named) had burstable-bandwidth. However, that became an issue when attempting to do a yum update. Here’s the workaround that let us download the updates no matter what the bandwidth was:

nano /etc/yum.conf

Add line:

timeout=999

And run:

yum clean all

And yum install …. who your need.
