UUOTac?  Try "sed '1,4d'" instead of the tac|head|tac stuff.  Or better,
use an awk range to filter the output:

awk '/^Setting up/,/^Updated Packages/{next};{print $1}'

Although this might be better, because it could be used with '-e 0 -d 0'
consistently:

awk 'FNR==1,/^Updated Packages/ {next}; {print}'

The problem with any of these are that long package names gets mangled in the yum output and i haven't found a place to tweak that.


an EXCELLENT reason to never rely on screenscraping.

Agreed! That's why something like this should work closer to yum!
