Re: yum - lack of features



Hi

My impression is that this is - or was? - rather dangerous.



Yum prompts before adding or removing packages unless you override it with a switch in the command line or the configuration file.


Doesn't "yum remove <pkg>" also remove any packages which require <pkg>,
which may be rather a lot?

I tried the above once, and got in a mess;
"yum install" was not a straightforward inverse of "yum remove".

Reverse depending tracking is not really a straightfoward thing since they are not explicitly defined. However yum should be able to figure it out and give you the entire listing of dependencies for any given package

Rahul
