Stopping Yum Updating Certain Packages

Written by James McDonald

July 6, 2007

I recently downloaded and installed OpenOffice.org’s 2.2.1

The next upgrade YUM wanted to do was going to downgrade it back to 2.2.0-14. etc.

To stop YUM doing this I added the following into the ‘[main]’ section of /etc/yum.conf

exclude=openoffice.org*

Information is available using man yum.conf
