After figuring out how to get out of yum interdepency hell
, I'm doing my yum -y update to upgrade my system to Fedora Core 4. I've arrived at this point:

Running Transaction Test
And now the cursor has been blinking for at least 40 minutes. Please, God, please!
And there it is: done. I wish there was at least a message that said, "Transaction test passed, your machine is clean and ready to boot into advanced functionality!" The thing just stops.
Still, never let it be said that there's no human drama in computer geekery.
