NAME         top

       yum filter data plugin

SYNOPSIS         top

       yum [options] [command] [package ...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       This plugin extends yum with some options, currently just for
       "update" and "list update" type commands, to allow filters to be
       placed on which packages should be used based on the data in those
       packages. Note that due to some of the data being unknown, and thus
       could possibly match, all unknown data is treated as a match.

GENERAL OPTIONS         top

       These are the options added to yum that are available in the "list
       updates", "info updates", "check-update" and "update" commands. They
       are:

       --filter-vendors
              This option includes packages which have a vendor which
              matches one of the passed vendor wildcard strings, or is
              unknown. Note that vendors can have spaces in their value, so
              "," is the only way to specify multiple vendors as one option
              argument.

       --filter-rpm-groups
              This option includes packages which have a group which matches
              one of the passed rpm group wildcard strings, or is unknown.
              Note that rpm groups can have spaces in their value, so "," is
              the only way to specify multiple rpm groups as one option
              argument.

       --filter-packagers
              This option includes packages which have a packager which
              matches one of the passed packager wildcard strings, or is
              unknown. Note that vendors can have spaces in their value, so
              "," is the only way to specify multiple packagers as one
              option argument.

       --filter-licenses
              This option includes packages which have a license which
              matches one of the passed license wildcard strings, or is
              unknown. Note that licenses can have spaces in their value, so
              "," is the only way to specify multiple licenses as one option
              argument.

       --filter-arches
              This option includes packages which have a arch which matches
              one of the passed arch wildcard strings, or is unknown.

       --filter-committers
              This option includes packages which have a committer which
              matches one of the passed committer wildcard strings, or is
              unknown. Note that committers can have spaces in their value,
              so "," is the only way to specify multiple committers as one
              option argument. Also, committer values are so loosely formed
              that they could contain commas too, it is recommended to not
              do that but you can work around it by using "?".

       --filter-buildhosts
              This option includes packages which have a buildhost which
              matches one of the passed buildhost wildcard strings, or is
              unknown.

       --filter-urls
              This option includes packages which have a url which matches
              one of the passed url wildcard strings, or is unknown.

       --filter-package-sizes
              This option includes packages which have a packagesize which
              is within one of the passed packagesize ranges, or is unknown.

       --filter-archive-sizes
              This option includes packages which have a archivesize which
              is within one of the passed archivesize ranges, or is unknown.

       --filter-installed-sizes
              This option includes packages which have a installedsize which
              is within one of the passed installedsize ranges, or is
              unknown.

       --filter-groups
              This option includes packages which are in a yum group which
              matches one of the passed yum group id strings, or is unknown.
              Note that yum groups can have spaces in their value, so "," is
              the only way to specify multiple yum groups as one option
              argument.

BUGS         top

       Currently yum can't filter packages in all of the commands, so for
       instance "yum list 'yum*'" doesn't get the results filtered.

       Apart from that there are no bugs, but should you find any, you
       should first consult the FAQ section on
       http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq and if unsuccessful in finding a
       resolution contact the mailing list: yum-devel@lists.baseurl.org.  To
       file a bug use http://bugzilla.redhat.com for Fedora/RHEL/Centos
       related bugs and http://yum.baseurl.org/report for all other bugs.
