Hi all,

I have a few repos installed, but need to update only one repository, because other return some dependency errors.

what is a syntax to run yum only for a selected repo?

Thanks

You can temp remove the .repo file from your yum.repos.d directory or edit the the repo file(s) in question and disable it.


Try yumex if you need GUI.

To enable a specific repo use:
 yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=$RepoNameHere install $Package

where $RepoNameHere is your repo name
and $Package is your package to install
