Re: Problem with Kmail filters

Now yumex is showing me the exact files I want to exclude as available updates

Do I have to list the exact names including the svn2007date-etc portion?
I made entries of kdepim-3.5.8-10 and kdepim-libs-3.5.8-10.

Can I just put a * on the end to cover the rest?  Just did, works.

Also, I manually enabled the [updates-source] entry to be enabled=1, but its 
not available in the yumex repo view.  What does it take to actually enable 
that repo?  BTW, I have edited that to enable it at least 4 times, but 
everytime I go back and check a day or so later, its enabled=0 again, but is 
sticking at a 1 now.  And yumex, after 3 restarts is not responding to the 
setting.

I also have the adobe entry in yum.repos.d.  From the last refresh:

---------------------
no mention of adobe-linux after its address is shown above, and it is not 
showing in the ALL display of yumex, nor in the repoview window.

Here is that file from yum.repos.d:
-------------------
[updates]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Updates

#baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/$releasever/$basearch/

enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
---------------------------

I had enabled both the baseurl and mirrorlist trying to make it work.  Whats 
wrong with it?
