yum - Yellowdog Updater Modified shell
yum shell [filename]
yum includes an interactive shell for conducting multiple commands or
sets of commands during a single execution of yum. These commands can
be issued manually or passed to yum from a file. The commands are much
the same as the normal yum command line options. See here yum(8) for
that information. There are a few additional commands documented below.
config [argument] [value]
args: debuglevel, errorlevel, obsoletes, gpgcheck, assumeyes,
If no value is given it prints the current value.
If value is given it sets that value.
repo [argument] [option]
list: lists repositories and their status
enable: enable repositories. option = repository id
disable: disable repositories. option = repository id
list: lists the contents of the transaction
reset: reset (zero-out) the transaction
solve: run the dependency solver on the transaction
run: run the transaction
The following are examples of using the yum shell.
list available packagename*
groupinfo ’Some Group’
That will list available packages matching the glob
’packagename*’. It will return information on the group ’Some
Group’ It will then queue the following commands into the
transaction: install foo, remove bar, update baz. Then the ’run’
command will resolve dependencies for the transaction commands
and run the transaction.
See the Authors file included with this program.
