Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171542
Request for Enhancement: Ignore packages
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:15 EST
Description of problem:
It would be great if it was possible to ignore some packages with pup. For
example, I've installed an old version of ndiswrapper, but I don't want it to be
updated because my computer crashes with the newer version.
It is possible to deselect a package, but I don't think that's the best
solution. I prefer the option that up2date has: You can select a package you
never want to update.
Unfortunately, I don't have developing skills, so I can't help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It won't be hard to make such an option.
Steps to Reproduce:
Thanks in advance !
You can already do this. Add an exclude= line to /etc/yum.conf
That's great ! Will there be an option to do this with pup, for user convenience?
Moving component to pirut. Sorry for the spam.
I would like to have this option in a preferences portion of pup too. Please
If you get to the point where you know that you're going to not be wanting a
package to be updated, then editing the config file really is the best thing to
do. Because in most cases, this is because of a bug that we should fix (whether
it's lack of support for hardware leading someone to use ndiswrapper or anything
