yum-versionlock.conf(5) is the configuration file for yum-version-
lock(1) Yum plugin for excluding packages that aren't listed in the
versionlock file. The plugin will walk each line of the versionlock
file, parse out the name and version of the package. It will then
exclude any package by that name that doesn't match one of the versions
listed within the file (or, optionally, any obsoleter of that package).
This is basically the same as doing an exclude for the package name
itself (as you cannot exclude installed packages), but yum will still
see the versions you have installed/versionlocked as available so that
"yum reinstall" will still work, etc.
yum-versionlock.conf(5) utilizes configuration options in the form of
This option is a boolean flag which specifies if the versionlock
plugin should look at all the obsoletes, and see if any of the
packages specified have an obsoleter. If an obsoleter is found
then all versions of that package will be excluded. This option
is off by default, as yum-versionlock(1) will take some time to
do the obsoletes processing, and for non-rename obsoletes any
issues you had which kept you at a specific version of a package
should be different with another package.
This option is a string with points to the file which will have
the versionlock information in it. Note that the file has to
exist (or the versionlock plugin will make yum exit). However it
can be empty.
