make yum faster

here is a quick way of making your yum process and download needed files and software dependencies a little bit faster than the default setup. as we all know, yum one CLI way on adding, updating and removing sofwares for your box.

this plugin somehow chooses the nearest repo site based from your current location.

all you need to do is, execute as root:

# yum - y install yum-fastestmirror

works like champ!

this would also affect pup program as pup uses yum to process any software updates and installations.
