  That explains it - I have the Freshrpms repo enabled but with its version of
libgpod excluded (since Core has an older version of the same package and I
don't need the newer one), and I keep getting told there is 1 update available.
  BTW, it would be nice to be given a list of the available packages, not just
told how many there are.  This functionality used to exist with rhn-applet, I

The functionality of rhn-applet is replaced by Puplet.
Comment 3 Julian Sikorski 2006-10-28 18:04:24 EDT
The interesting thing happens if you have multiple excludes defined. My yum.conf
entry looks as follows:
exclude=openoffice.org-* freetype*
I have excluded these packages because I use vanilla openoffice.org due to bug
#171908 and freetype because I have recompiled it for BCI support. The thing is
that puplet says that there are 2 updates available, so it correctly excludes
openoffice.org and fails to do the same with freetype.
