yum history command and other docs

June 18, 2010

Just wanted to put this up as something to check out:

yum in late f12 and f13 grew a ‘history’ command. It does A LOT and is worth checking out:

And there are a number of other yum docs available at:

but definitely check out yum history.

  1. Hmm, ideas:

    “yum history diff 15 12” .. show the diff of the state of things between 15 and 12?

    Or maybe do that and support times as input?

    Thinking of what it takes to fix your kickstart template when you find out you’ve been doing some things outside of kickstart (or want more packages installed the easy way before you fire up whatever CM tool you are using).
