Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 174396
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:53:01 EST
It'd be a great feature to be able to disable and enable all repos with one
simple command instead of repeating different combinations of --enablerepo and
Use case for --enablerepo=all:
User has a bunch of repos of which he mainly only uses 4
(base+updates+extras+livna) and wants to search all repos for a given app which
is hard to find.
Use case for --disablerepo=all
Same user as above wants to install some rpm's from devel and extras-devel, and
doesn't want the other repos to interfere. He uses "--disablerepo=all
--enablerepo=development --enablerepo=development" and thus save a couple of
times typing --disablerepo=reponame for every available repo.
from the man page:
Enables specific repositories by id or glob that have been dis-
abled in the configuration file using the enabled=0 option.
Configuration Option: enabled
yum --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo='thisrepo'
So in the above only 'thisrepo' would be looked at
Ah, I see!
Sorry for bothering you!
But as an even smaller side-bug: please update the man page to reflect that
example. Just before submitting this bug I read the man page and suspected glob
might be something like this. Didn't manage to figure out how to use it though.
So: mind adding that row you added for me to the man page?
