Linux - "yum", examples

            Written: Giansante Gabriele, 30/01/2017      Translation Giansante Gabriele

Tested with "yum 3.2.29", "CentOS 6.8".
These examples do not cover all cases
(see Manpage of YUM (8) , Manpage of YUM.CONF (5) ).

Installs a package and any packages that it depends on (software, library, etc., checks for dependencies and asks for confirmation):

yum install <package>
yum install <package1> <package2> ... <packageN>
Removes a package and its dependencies:

yum remove <package>
yum remove <package1> <package2> ... <packageN>
yum erase <package>
yum erase <package1> <package2> ... <packageN>
Checks the availability of the updates:

yum check-update
# yum check-update
mysql.i686         5.1.73-8.el6_8  updates
mysql-libs.i686    5.1.73-8.el6_8  updates
mysql-server.i686  5.1.73-8.el6_8  updates    
Starts the upgrade of all available packages:

yum upgrade
Silent upgrade (assume "yes" as the answer to all questions):

yum -q -y upgrade
Searches the configured repositories to find matching packages:

yum search <search_string>
yum search all <search_string>
# yum search dolphin-connector
================= N/S Matched: dolphin-connector =====================
dolphin-connector.i686 : Simple MySQL C API wrapper for C++
dolphin-connector-devel.i686 : Development files for Dolphin Connector
List of configured repositories:

yum repolist
Gives information about a package and (eventually) its updates:

yum info <package>
# yum info basesystem
Pacchetti installati
Nome         : basesystem
Arch         : noarch
Versione     : 10.0

Licenza      : Public Domain
Descrizione  : Basesystem defines the components of a basic Red Hat Enterprise Linux
             : system (for example, the package installation order to use during
             : bootstrapping). Basesystem should be in every installation of a system,
             : and it should never be removed.
List of dependencies and required packages:

yum deplist <package>
# yum deplist basesystem
