NAME

       yum-versionlock.conf(5)

SYNOPSIS

       yum-versionlock.conf(5)    is   the   configuration   file   for   yum-
       versionlock(1) Yum plugin for excluding packages that aren't listed  in
       the   versionlock  file.   The  plugin  will  walk  each  line  of  the
       versionlock file, parse out the name and version  of  the  package.  It
       will  then  exclude  any package by that name that doesn't match one of
       the versions listed within the file (or, optionally, any  obsoleter  of
       that  package).  This is basically the same as doing an exclude for the
       package name itself (as you cannot exclude installed packages), but yum
       will  still  see  the  versions  you  have  installed/versionlocked  as
       available so that "yum reinstall" will still work, etc.

FILES

       /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.conf

FILE FORMAT

       yum-versionlock.conf(5) utilizes configuration options in the form of

       OPTION=VALUE

OPTION

       follow_obsoletes
              This option is a boolean flag which specifies if the versionlock
              plugin  should  look at all the obsoletes, and see if any of the
              packages specified have an obsoleter. If an obsoleter  is  found
              then  all versions of that package will be excluded. This option
              is off by default, as yum-versionlock(1) will take some time  to
              do  the  obsoletes  processing, and for non-rename obsoletes any
              issues you had which kept you at a specific version of a package
              should be different with another package.

OPTION

       locklist
              This  option is a string with points to the file which will have
              the versionlock information in it. Note that  the  file  has  to
              exist (or the versionlock plugin will make yum exit). However it
              can be empty.
