rpm -qi yum-plugin-tsflags
man 5 yum.conf - tsflags
If you haven't found that it works that way, it's for your own good.
yum love us all. :)
> Btw, does GoogleEarth have a repo, or is there a third-party repo
rpm -qp --scripts google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm | grep yum.repos
But the question is, does it work at all. ;)
Note the dates:
Using your and Kevin's suggestions I was able to set up the Google
repositories. However, I am unable to use yum to install for the same
reasons as before.
I did try out:
after installing yum-plugin-tsflags
man 5 yum.conf -tsflags "excludepath"
but nothing useful came of that (from what I can tell, this is just the
manpage of yum.conf?).
