       yum - Yellowdog Updater Modified shell


       yum shell [filename]


       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,
                   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

                   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


       The following are examples of using the yum shell.

               list available packagename*
               groupinfo ’Some Group’
               install foo
               remove bar
               update baz

              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.
