NAME

       yum - Yellowdog Updater Modified shell

SYNOPSIS

       yum shell [filename]

DESCRIPTION

       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, exclude
                   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

       transaction
                 [argument]
                   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

Examples

       The following are examples of using the yum shell.

               list available packagename*
               groupinfo 'Some Group'
               install foo
               remove bar
               update baz
               run

              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.
