As far as yum is concerned, it will usually continue with other packages
after killing the current one.

You can do an "rpm -qa | sort" and compare to the CentOS tree.

You can also look at:

/var/log/yum.log to see what is installed after mysql

and ...

rpm -qa --last | less

(to see rpms installed in reverse order from the rpmdb)
