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.
