Description of problem:
pkgpolicy in yum.conf is not documented in online manual
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man yum.conf
2. find pkgpolicy
I can not find pkgpolicy section of the man.
I should find pkgpolicy section of the man.
Currently pkgpolicy=newest is set as a default.
This is sufficient for most of the user.
But from customer support engineer's point of view, we sometimes
want to download older version of RPMs or debuginfo-RPM.
So that's why I would like to know what else I can set in
this parapeters other than "newest".
This is the reason why I want to read the man page.
I expect there is a parameter such as pkgpolicy=all (all generations)
pkgpolicy actually doesn't exist any more; the fact that it's still in the
config is a remnant of days gone past. I've gone ahead and nuked it to avoid
confusion in the future.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Thanks for the answer.
I found one-line comment that pkgpolicy option was removed on March/2005.
One more minor error that I found in yum.conf manual is in "keepcache"
section. It is said "Default value is 1.(keep files)".
But on RHEL5 and Fedora Core 5, the default value of keepcache is
set to 0.
This has been removed in the RHEL-5.2 configuration file.
Moving to VERIFIED: On clean install of yum package there is no 'pkgpolicy'
option in the /etc/yum.conf.
