yum-cron - an interface to convieniently call yum from cron
yum-cron is an alternate interface to yum that is optimised to be convenient to call from cron. It provides methods to keep repository
metadata up to date, and to check for, download, and apply updates. Rather than accepting many different command line arguments, the dif-
ferent functions of yum-cron can be accessed through config files.
config-file is used to optionally specify the path to the configuration file to use. If it is not given, the default configuration file
will be used. It is useful to be able to specify different configuration files for different use cases. For example, one configuration
file might be set to update the repository metadata, and a line could be added to the crontab to run yum-cron frequently using this file.
Then, another configuration file might be set to install updates, and yum-cron could be run from cron using this file just once each day.

There of course aren't any bugs, but if you find any, you should email
the mailing list, email@example.com, or consult bugzilla.

yum - Yellowdog Updater Modified shell
yum shell [filename]
yum includes an interactive shell for conducting multiple commands or sets of commands during a single execution of yum. These commands can
be issued manually or passed to yum from a file. The commands are much the same as the normal yum command line options. See here yum(8) for
that information. There are a few additional commands documented below.
args: debuglevel, errorlevel, obsoletes, gpgcheck, assumeyes, exclude
If no value is given it prints the current value.
If value is given it sets that value.
list: lists repositories and their status
enable: enable repositories. option = repository id
disable: disable repositories. option = repository id
list: lists the contents of the transaction
reset: reset (zero-out) the transaction
solve: run the dependency solver on the transaction
run: run the transaction
The following are examples of using the yum shell.
list available packagename*
groupinfo 'Some Group'
That will list available packages matching the glob 'packagename*'. It will return information on the group 'Some Group' It will
then queue the following commands into the transaction: install foo, remove bar, update baz. Then the 'run' command will resolve
dependencies for the transaction commands and run the transaction.
See the Authors file included with this program.
There of course aren't any bugs, but if you find any, they should be sent to the mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org or filed in bugzilla.
