Die, yum, die

When running a yum command (such as yum check-update) it doesn’t always seem to capture the CTRL+C signal in order to terminate the process. This means it sits there for ages while it tries to access the internet.

So, to kill yum I simply background it with CTRL+Z and then run kill %1, which will kills the first in the jobs queue. Problem solved!
