Description Ken Crandall 1999-09-10 13:22:34 UTC
It would be nice to have a '--nokernel' flag for the
'--freshen' option, so one could do an 'rpm -Fvh *' without
having to worry that a kernel RPM will get in the mix.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-10 13:58:59 UTC
Try
	ls -1 * |  grep -v '^kernel > /tmp/1
	rpm -F `cat /tmp/1`

Otherwise I'll be adding --nothis, --nothat flags to rpm for eternity.
