man(5) yum.conf says * and ? will work in an exclude. I added an exclude, and my
exclude looks like this:
$ cat yum.conf
as the fglrx does not work with my graphics/card combo. Ran 'sync', then 'yum update, and saw the following:
# yum update
Loading "protectbase" plugin
Loading "protect-packages" plugin
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update
$ rpm -qa | grep fglrx
This is not encouraging. Hardware is aging, but not archaic (ATI Radeon 9000, Princeton VL19 19" LCD). Having to edit xorg.conf to specify "radeon" vice "fglrx" to get a runlevel, as I've had to do since the last time
livna updated their fglrx packages, get old.
The packages could actually be protected, and only what yum displays is incorrect. Troubleshooting ideas welcome, as I either have to wait for next fglrx update, on an unknown timeline, or do potentially large package rollbacks. Hence the next unsatisfactory but truthful entry(s).
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
you have a typo your exclude option is being spelled:
Duh. Tested, works as advertised.
