Description of problem:
Specially with Fedora 9, every time I try to update or install something, yum
always select a slow mirror the first time.  I can workaround this issue hitting
Ctrl + C.  It then tries again in another mirror and download the files at full

Is anybody else seeing this problem?

I guess I could configure yum so that it uses a fast mirror in the first try, I
just don't know how to do it.

You can try installing the fastestmirror plugin.

yum install yum-fastestmirror

it should do what you want.

Thanks Tim, I knew it wasn't a bug as such.

I'll try it at home tonight and see how it works.
