you care about?

How did you know it was a broken update before you installed it?

That's a separate problem. It would be nice if only the first person to try it had to experience the brokenness, but let's assume I have a test machine and I'm the first to notice. How do I save my production machine from the same fate (and on a side note, everyone else)?

Assuming you know ahead of time that specific updates are broken you can use
yum exclude directive to exclude specific packages

man yum.conf

That doesn't sound like something that scales very well. Can I get the package set I want by excluding all other possibilities?
