yumex not disabling repos
Last modified: 2009-08-06 06:49:32 EDT
Description of problem:
On a Fedora 11 installation, I installed yumex (version 2.0.5) to manage my updates:
[CODE]sudo yum install yumex[/CODE]
Among the repos that I downloaded was livna.org, which I normally want disabled as the default. From within yumex, in the Repository Selection View, I removed the check associated with livna.
The next time I launched yumex and checked, livna was still checked. I had to manually edit /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo and change:
to disable livna.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): version 2.0.5
How reproducible: see above
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: repository is not disabled (either in the yumex GUI or in the /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo file
Expected results: repository should be disabled (enabled=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo)
Additional info: There is a workaround (see above).
repo selection in the yumex repo view, is a temporary selection for the current yumex session, it will not change the start of the .repo files.
You can use "System -> Administration -> Software Sources" to do a permanent change of a repo enable/disable state
