comment “yum clean” hangs - what to try next?
@JannePikkarainen - yes there is network access. I can ssh into and out of it, and ping other servers. I can load web pages in lynx.

comment “yum clean” hangs - what to try next?
@JannePikkarainen - lsof /var/lib/rpm/Packages originally showed an old rpm process. I've killed that, and my yum, checked that lsof didn't show anything else accessing the file, and tried again, but I stop at the same place. I've also scanned through the full lsof output and not seen anything that looks likely.

There is a single root fs (with plenty of space) and then just proc, sysfs and tmpfs (and tmpfs has plenty of space).
