yum-versionlock - Version lock rpm packages
yum-versionlock [ package-name [ package-name]] ...
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 versions. 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.
/etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.conf The system wide configuration file. See yum-versionlock.conf(5) for more information. /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.list 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.
