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.
