I would like yum to update all system packages except the mysql related packages. How can I prevent yum from updating mysql on a CentOS/RHEL system?
There are basically two ways,
Way 1: edit yum config file /etc/yum.conf, and add this line in the end,
Then, you can run yum update to upgrade all the rest packages.
Way 2: Use command line parameter to ignore pages. The command is like below
yum update -x mysql* yum update --exclude mysql*
Please note that,
- The excluded chars above are case sensitive
- If you need to exclude multiple packages, you can sepecify the strings as “–exclude=mysql*,ImageMagick”
