NAME         top

       yum-config-manager - manage yum configuration options and yum reposi‐

SYNOPSIS         top

       yum-config-manager [options] [section ...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

OPTIONS         top

       -h, --help
              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 \*".

              Add (and enable) the repo from the specified file or url.


       Yum-config-manager inherits all other options from yum. See the
       yum(8) man page for more information.

EXAMPLES         top

       Show the configuration of [main] and the repos foo and bar:

              yum-config-manager main foo bar

       Enable the repos foo and bar:

              yum-config-manager --enable foo bar

       Change a global option:

              yum-config-manager --setopt=installonly_limit=5 --save

       Change a repo option of the repo foo (works even if foo is disabled):

              yum-config-manager --setopt=foo.skip_if_unavailable=1 --save

       Change a repo option of more repos at once:

              yum-config-manager --setopt=\*.skip_if_unavailable=1 --save
              foo bar baz

       Change a repo option of all the enabled repos:

              yum-config-manager --setopt=\*.skip_if_unavailable=1 --save

       Change a repo option of all the configured (that is, enabled and
       disabled) repos:

              yum-config-manager --setopt=\*.skip_if_unavailable=1 --save \*
