    yum history - meaning of "EE"

    Hello all,

    In my yum history listing, I've noticed the "EE" in the Altered column next to some of the entries.

    It looks like this (example from Section 5.16.1 History http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/....html#id938942:

    Code:
    617 | System <unset> | 2010-12-23 13:16 | E, I, U | 30 EE
    Does anyone know what the "EE" means?

    Thanks,
    buddha

    From 'man yum':

    In "history list" output the Altered column also gives some extra information if there was something not good with the transaction.

    > - The rpmdb was changed, outside yum, after the transaction.
    < - The rpmdb was changed, outside yum, before the transaction.
    * - The transaction aborted before completion.
    # - The transaction completed, but with a non-zero status.
    E - The transaction completed fine, but had warning/error output during the transaction.
    P - The transaction completed fine, but problems already existed in the rpmdb.
    s - The transaction completed fine, but --skip-broken was enabled and had to skip some packages

    Thanks for that.

    I eventually found that part in the yum man page, but am still guessing that two EEs means the same as one E as listed in the man page.

    I assume that it means multiple transaction errors, as opposed to a single transaction error.
