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 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.

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.

BUGS         top

       first consult the FAQ section on http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq and
       if unsuccessful in finding a resolution contact the mailing list:
       yum-devel@lists.baseurl.org.  To file a bug use
