manage yum configuration options and yum repositories


 yum-config-manager [options] [section ...] 


 yum-config-manager is a program that can manage main yum configuration options, toggle which repositories are enabled or disabled, and add new repositories. Unless --add-repo is used, the program will output the current configuration of the selected sections, and optionally save it back to the corresponding files. By default, if no positional arguments are specified, the program will select the [main] section and each enabled repository. You can override this by specifying your own list of sections as arguments (these may also include disabled repositories). A section can either be main or a repoid. 


 -h, --help Display a help message, and then quit. --setopt=option=value Set any config option in yum config or repo files. For options in the global config just use: --setopt=option=value for repo options use: --setopt=repoid.option=value. The latter form accepts wildcards in repoid that will be expanded to the selected sections. If repoid contains no wildcard, it will automatically be selected; this is useful if you are addressing a disabled repo, in which case you don't have to additionally pass it as an argument. --save Save the current options (useful with --setopt). --enable Enable the specified repos (automatically saves). To enable all repositories run "yum-config-manager --enable \*". --disable Disable the specified repos (automatically saves). To disable all repositories run "yum-config-manager --disable \*". --add-repo=ADDREPO Add (and enable) the repo from the specified file or url. 


 Yum-config-manager inherits all other options from yum. See the yum(8) man page for more information.
