Hello, I have tried to search for this to no avail, what does it mean when you do a yum list and the package is in red letters? It says installed next to it but I have the sneaking suspicion that something is wrong.

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick replies! First off the package in red is the last kmod-nvidia (the one for todays kernel update, 2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64):


yum list *nvidia*
Loaded plugins: priorities, refresh-packagekit
3675 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
Installed Packages
akmod-nvidia.x86_64 180.29-1.fc10 installed
kmod-nvidia.x86_64 180.29-1.fc10 installed
kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.12-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64.x86_64 180.27-1.fc10 installed
kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10.x86_64.x86_64 180.29-1.fc10 installed
kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64.x86_64 180.29-1.fc10 installed


On an identical machine that I updated as well today, the entry is not in red.

rpm -qa | grep fc 11 returns nothing.

yum clean all
yum update

Still in red and when using yum with the --noplugins switch says there are no packages marked for update. Thanks for the help though!

I too have occassionally seen a package displayed in red text when doing something with yum and wondered just what that was trying to tell me. Reading this thread got me to thinking on that a bit harder and I came up with this:

http://img293.imageshack.us/img293/7504/yumredlist.jpg (http://img293.imageshack.us/my.php?image=yumredlist.jpg)

Seems there is more than just one 'cause' for the show in red text result. From my 'red' list, the bulk are packages that have updates awaiting them and that I have never updated since doing fresh install because I don't use them (FF version 2, Java other than Sun Java, all in my exclude= list). Then there are a few that come from non standard sources, the Livna repo items, lindvd, msttcorefonts. Then there is the one of questionable origin, meaning, I don't exactly remember, gtk-aurora-engine. Some that are 'old', non-current packages, kmod-nvidia and kernel. And a package that I built from source code, which fixed a non functional part from the standard issue rpm package, xfce4-sensors-plugin.

And then there's that grep package shown in green text. I built the rpm for that from a F11 SRPM package (for F8). I guess the only thing learned from my exercise here is to note that yum lists of packages in red (or other 'color') indicate either an update is available, are outdated or they are non-standard packages.

Just in case anybody else washes up here (like me) trying to work out what it means when a yum entry is in red, the CentOS forum has a good summary of Yum colors here (https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=23034).

Red implies that the package is installed; but no longer available in the repos.
