Disable Fastest Mirror in CentOS

Ironically, the yum test to find the “fastest mirror” can often times bog down, resulting in slower package install times. I’ve mostly disabled this feature to improve performance.

To disable “fastest mirror”:

vi /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/fastestmirror.conf

Then change the line:

enabled=1

To:

enabled=0
