Yum Question

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my post.

My question is: How to skip the installation of a package when using yum update from the command line?
ie. How would one update a system from command line and skip/not update kernel?

Thanks in advance,

Ky

Thank you Tom

If you want to exclude the PAE kernel also you need to add a * after kernel.

Code:
yum update --exclude=kernel*
PS. No more Gentoo?

Re: Yum Question

Haven't run Gentoo in quite awhile, actually. Got lazy, have a few games I want to play on my desktop, and I don't have the patience to build Gentoo on my netbook (the machine I'm posting from).

Apparently, not lazy enough - save some typing and be even more lazy:
yum update -x kernel*
