yum list lib*
but if you have a stable working system and want to keep it just as it is--you see the effect of this command?
like maybe your system doesn't like smp kernels for some reason--this could be "not so good"
If using an install--you could get a little more then wanted--using a remove could be worse.
But using it as a localinstall in a directory full of just downloaded stuff could work well--same for rpm commands.
OK - Thanks guys! That's what I wanted to know, ofcourse, the usual percaution(s) should be taken when using them. I would think it's safe to say that using wildcards with yum update is not the best idea for obvious reasons.
