Re: yum plugin suggestion or yum change?



Hi

And yet it frequently happens with the GFS related kernel module
packages. Security kernel fixes which go directly into
updates-released inevitable cause the GFS and related kernel module
packages to be out of sync in updates-released.
GFS kernel modules not being in sync is not much of a regression. Its a known issue documented to a extend in the release notes.

http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc4/#sn-kernel

Similar dependencies are there for the Xen kernel too. Any out of tree kernel modules are only going to get sorted when FESCO comes out with a packaging decision on that or better yet when they get merged upstream.

If partial upgrade option doesnt sound good to have an alternative could be a plugin that provides a option to exclude a package and all its dependencies in a repository. Instead of changing the exclude options behavior a new one like

excludedeps=gtk2

for example can exclude GTK2 and all it dependencies. You can fiddle around with repoquery and figure this out but this is potentially much easier.

Rahul
