observations on "Managing Software with yum"



  might as well collect my observations on
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/en/index.html

section 1.3:  might mention that "tsclient" can also be invoked just
from the command line, not only from the menus

section 2.2:  "To view a list of all of the available package groups
for your Fedora system, run the command su -c 'yum grouplist'. "

  - i don't believe just getting a yum grouplist requires root access,
and i'd avoid typing "su -c" where it's technically not required.

section 4.1:  if you're going to mention "yum groupinstall", it might
be useful to also mention "yum groupinfo", unless you cover that
later.  (i notice you do cover "yum groupupdate" and "yum groupremove"
just a bit farther down the page.)

section 5.1:  again, i would avoid prefixing commands with "su -c"
that don't require it.

i also don't see any mention of "yum info" on that page, which i find
handy, particularly with wildcard patterns.

section 5.2: the example of "yum provides libneon" might emphasize
that that search covers only installed packages, no?

  more later, possibly.
