I can't find a way to install the timeout package using yum, just as I could using apt-get on Ubuntu.

what does yum respond the moment it throws the error? – Diskilla Nov 10 '10 at 15:49

If you're just looking for the /usr/bin/timeout command, it's part of the coreutils package on Fedora, which you should already have:

[user@box] yum provides *bin/timeout
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
coreutils-7.6-8.fc12.x86_64 : A set of basic GNU tools commonly used in shell scripts
Repo        : installed
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/bin/timeout
