This seemed very wierd to me.

Here’s what i used to get before it “hung”

[root@xxxx ~]# yum install mod_dav_svn

Host is not communicating for more than 15 seconds. Still waiting….

Warning: Aborting this operating will close the connection.

As it turned out, it was waiting for user input

“Is this ok[y/N]”

Solution: ? The “-y” flag of yum

yum-y install mod_dav_svn
