NAME

       yum filter data plugin

SYNOPSIS

       yum [options] [command] [package ...]

DESCRIPTION

       This  plugin  extends yum with some options, currently just for "update" and "list update"
       type commands, to allow filters to be placed on which packages should be used based on the
       data  in  those  packages. Note that due to some of the data being unknown, and thus could
       possibly match, all unknown data is treated as a match.

GENERAL OPTIONS

       These are the options added to yum  that  are  available  in  the  "list  updates",  "info
       updates", "check-update" and "update" commands. They are:

       --filter-vendors
              This  option  includes packages which have a vendor which matches one of the passed
              vendor wildcard strings, or is unknown. Note that vendors can have spaces in  their
              value, so "," is the only way to specify multiple vendors as one option argument.

       --filter-rpm-groups
              This  option  includes  packages which have a group which matches one of the passed
              rpm group wildcard strings, or is unknown. Note that rpm groups can have spaces  in
              their  value,  so  "," is the only way to specify multiple rpm groups as one option
              argument.

       --filter-packagers
              This option includes packages which have a packager which matches one of the passed
              packager  wildcard  strings,  or  is  unknown. Note that vendors can have spaces in
              their value, so "," is the only way to specify multiple  packagers  as  one  option
              argument.

       --filter-licenses
              This  option includes packages which have a license which matches one of the passed
              license wildcard strings, or is unknown. Note that  licenses  can  have  spaces  in
              their  value,  so  ","  is  the only way to specify multiple licenses as one option
              argument.

       --filter-arches
              This option includes packages which have a arch which matches  one  of  the  passed
              arch wildcard strings, or is unknown.

       --filter-committers
              This  option  includes  packages  which  have  a committer which matches one of the
              passed committer wildcard strings, or is unknown. Note  that  committers  can  have
              spaces in their value, so "," is the only way to specify multiple committers as one
              option argument. Also, committer values are  so  loosely  formed  that  they  could
              contain commas too, it is recommeneded to not do that but you can work around it by
              using "?".

       --filter-buildhosts
              This option includes packages which have a  buildhost  which  matches  one  of  the
              passed buildhost wildcard strings, or is unknown.

       --filter-urls
              This  option includes packages which have a url which matches one of the passed url
              wildcard strings, or is unknown.

       --filter-package-sizes
              This option includes packages which have a packagesize which is within one  of  the
              passed packagesize ranges, or is unknown.

       --filter-archive-sizes
              This  option  includes packages which have a archivesize which is within one of the
              passed archivesize ranges, or is unknown.

       --filter-installed-sizes
              This option includes packages which have a installedsize which is within one of the
              passed installedsize ranges, or is unknown.

       --filter-groups
              This  option  includes  packages  which are in a yum group which matches one of the
              passed yum group id strings, or is unknown. Note that yum groups can have spaces in
              their  value,  so  "," is the only way to specify multiple yum groups as one option
              argument.

EXAMPLES

       To list all updates that are 1 MB or less use:

              yum --filter-package-sizes=-1m check-update

       To apply updates that Dan Walsh has committed use:

              yum --filter-committers='Dan Walsh *' update

       To list updates for a specific group use:

              yum --filter-rpm-groups='App*/Sys*' list updates

       To apply updates to a specific set of groups use:

              yum --filter-rpm-groups='App*/System,Devel*/Lib*,System Environment/Base' update

       To list updates for a set of yum groups use:

              yum --filter-groups='PostgreSQL Database,Web Server' list updates

BUGS

       Currently yum can't filter packages in all of the commands,  so  for  instance  "yum  list
       'yum*'" doesn't get the results filtered.

       Apart  from  that there are no bugs, but should you find any, you should first consult the
       FAQ section on http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq and if unsuccessful in finding a resolution
       contact   the   mailing   list:   yum-devel@lists.baseurl.org.    To   file   a   bug  use
       http://bugzilla.redhat.com     for      Fedora/RHEL/Centos      related      bugs      and
       http://yum.baseurl.org/report for all other bugs.
