How to install faster using YUM in Fedora 19

YUM is the default installer in Fedora 19. The algorithm used by YUM to install an app is bit slow as it search, verify and then install the app. YUM installs the application only if the package has all the dependencies ready to install. If any one dependencies is not available it shows error message.

Issue – Installation is slow

Solution 1:
To speed up the installation process you can install YUM Extender, it is the latest version of YUM. It is available in the default Fedora repository. To install YUM Extender or YUMEX just type the following command.

#yum install yumex -y

Note: Install this package as root. To switch to root user use “su” command.

Solution 2:
The other method is installing AppCenter for Fedora. To do so follow below steps.

1. Switching to root user

2. Installing Wget
#yum install wget
#wget -P/etc/yum.repos.d/
#yum update
#yum install appcenter

3. To configure YUM with fast mirrors
#yum install yum-fastestmirror
