Description of problem:
In RHN, there is no possibility to mark packages that should never be updated.
For example, I am running a system with a custom-built kernel that should not be
updated via RHN.
Now, of course, the RHN pages show this system as having "critical updates"
available. I could not find a way to turn that off.
It would be nice to have some kind of "skip list" in the system preferences
where one could mark certain packages as irrelevant for updates, although they
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to RHN
2. Look at the "My RedHat Network" page
Actual Results: Some systems are shown as having "critical updates available",
although not all updates apply to these systems
Yes, this is one of the oldest requests in our collection. We'll get to it one
day, we promise.
