Description Adam Huffman 2008-07-03 14:38:35 UTC
Description of problem:
On one machine running F8 I have repeatedly tried installing yum-security but
even though the package installation completes normally, none of the extra
command-line options are available.  E.g.

Running Transaction
  Installing: yum-security                 ######################### [1/1] 

Installed: yum-security.noarch 0:1.1.14-4.fc8
[root@amber ~]# yum --security check-update
Usage: yum [options] < grouplist, localinstall, groupinfo, localupdate,
resolvedep, erase, deplist, groupremove, makecache, upgrade, provides, shell,
install, whatprovides, groupinstall, update, repolist, groupupdate, info,
search, check-update, list, remove, clean, grouperase >

Command line error: no such option: --security

 Do you have plugins=1 in /etc/yum.conf ?
 I was pretty sure this was on by default, but maybe I'm mis-remembering.

Comment 2 Adam Huffman 2008-07-03 16:43:25 UTC
It was missing and security (as well as the other plugins) started working once
I added it, so apologies for the noise.

Comment 3 Jan Hutař 2008-07-08 07:38:50 UTC
According to comment #2, this is a CLOSED(NOTABUG)?
