too high a number? I have the numerical protection set to 1. Is there
a good tutorial about how to correctly set up the protect base.



I'd go with the priorities plugin.

Just to be on the safe side, I installed both plugins and have them
configured now. FWIW, I did a yum check-update and for some unknown
reason, I got no dependency issues and nothing was tagged for update!
Surely the addition of the protectbase and priorities plugins didn't do
that???


I appreciate all you all have responded, and apologize for the lame
questions. Time for me to do some more list reading I suppose.

Sam: Having both plugins installed is probably *not* a good thing to
do. As was previously suggested, probably best to go with Priorities.
Read this page:
<http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities>
I think the number of Packages being excluded (318) is in the ballpark.

Thanks for the tip Lanny. Just set it up and will let it fly with
priorities only.

Ray: I noticed from his email address that he's an amateur radio
operator (Ham).
73 = "Best Regards" for Ham Radio Operators. I learned the Morse Code
when I was 11 years old and I can still use it. Lanny
