Re: yum vs. up2date

I have problems with yum sometimes. Like if I say 'yum update packagex', it will update my entire system, or try to anyway. That is the syntax from the man page. I haven't seen what option turns that off. Does anyone know if yum has a '--force singlepackageonly' type option?


Doesn't man yum with: "update If run without any packages, update
will update every currently installed package. If one or more
packages are specified, Yum will only update the listed
packages. While updating packages, yum will ensure that all
dependencies are satisfied. If no package matches the given
package name(s), they are assumed to be a shell glob and any
matches are then installed." answer both your questions?



-- good luck
