Try setting the env var URLGRABBER_DEBUG=1, e.g.
install foo', it gives a huge amount of extra debug output; the point is it
shows the mirror yum picked to download a package.

This time Ctrl-C and immediate repeat worked a charm. Is it a normally OK
thing to do? Isn't there some way to configure Yum to see when ETA on a
package is and stays beyond reasonable length to try some other mirror?
Details: 9 packages selected to download and install. First 8 downloaded in
mere seconds. Last of the bunch kept producing ETAs in the 10-20 minute
range, so after a few minutes, I aborted, and within mere seconds of restart
all 9 were done installing.
