NAME         top

       yum-versionlock - Version lock rpm packages

SYNOPSIS         top

       yum-versionlock [ package-name [ package-name]] ...

DESCRIPTION         top

       yum-versionlock(1) is a Yum plugin that takes a set of
       name/versions for packages and excludes all other versions of
       those packages (including optionally following obsoletes).  This
       allows you to protect packages from being updated by newer

       The plugin provides a command "versionlock" which allows you to
       view and edit the list of locked packages easily.

       yum versionlock add <package-wildcard>...
              Add a versionlock for all of the packages in the rpmdb
              matching the given wildcards.

       yum versionlock exclude <package-wildcard>...
              Opposite; disallow currently available versions of the
              packages matching the given wildcards.

       yum versionlock list
              List the current versionlock entries.

       yum versionlock status
              List any available updates that are currently blocked by
              versionlock.  That is, for each entry in the lock list,
              print the newest package available in the repos unless it
              is the particular locked/excluded version.

       yum versionlock delete <entry-wildcard>...
              Remove any matching versionlock entries.

       yum versionlock clear
              Remove all versionlock entries.

FILES         top

              The system wide configuration file. See
              yum-versionlock.conf(5) for more information.
              The default place to put package version lock information
              (one package and version per. line). The file takes
              entries in the following format EPOCH:NAME-VERSION-
              RELEASE.ARCH See rpm(8) for more information on custom
              query formats. If the package does not have an EPOCH the
              number will default to 0.

       and if unsuccessful in finding a resolution contact the mailing
       list: yum-devel@lists.baseurl.org.  To file a bug use
