Description James Wilkinson 2007-07-24 08:14:59 EDT

This is about the latest yum-3.2.2-1.fc7 in updates-testing (not rawhide), and
the configuration and documentation of the new integrated installonlyn.

In the changelog, it reports:
- set installonly_limit to '2'
Has this actually happened?

A patch has been applied to yum in fedora that sets this value to '2' in the
source code. We did this so that people who had installonlyn on before didn't
find it suddenly disabled.

Comment 2 James Wilkinson 2007-07-24 09:35:29 EDT
Could we have the man page fixed, then, please?

The attached patch is an updated version of installonlyn-enable.patch from the
devel branch.  It fixes the yum.conf manpage to reflect the change in the
installonly_limit default.
