yum-config-manager is a program that can manage main yum
configuration options, toggle which repositories are enabled or
disabled, and add new repositories.
Unless --add-repo is used, the program will output the current
configuration of the selected sections, and optionally save it
back to the corresponding files.
By default, if no positional arguments are specified, the program
will select the [main] section and each enabled repository. You
can override this by specifying your own list of sections as
arguments (these may also include disabled repositories). A
section can either be main or a repoid.
Display a help message, and then quit.
Set any config option in yum config or repo files. For
options in the global config just use:
--setopt=option=value for repo options use:
--setopt=repoid.option=value. The latter form accepts
wildcards in repoid that will be expanded to the selected
sections. If repoid contains no wildcard, it will
automatically be selected; this is useful if you are
addressing a disabled repo, in which case you don't have
to additionally pass it as an argument.
--save Save the current options (useful with --setopt).
Enable the specified repos (automatically saves). To
enable all repositories run "yum-config-manager --enable
Disable the specified repos (automatically saves). To
disable all repositories run "yum-config-manager --disable
