One thing I would really like is for PackageKit to download updates in
the background (detecting whether I am on a low bandwidth connection)
and only prompt me for updates when it is ready to install.
Another constant annoyance is that soon after a yum operation in the
command line, PackageKit insists on updating some metadata immediately
thereby locking out the subsequent commands for sometime (can be a
considerable delay). I would prefer it to wait for a few mins and not
interrupt me. Filed and closed WONTFIX however.
Just disable the packagekit yum plugin or do yum remove PackageKit-yum-plugin
