I was/am experiencing some problems with YUM because of the nss bug. Unfortunately instead of checking forums thinking I was doing the right thing, I contacted my host company to fix the problem. I guess they “fixed” the problem but it seems they have made some other modifications to files on the system especially the yum.conf file. In the yum.conf file, they added this:
exclude=bind-chroot courier* dovecot* exim* filesystem httpd* mod_ssl* mydns* mysql* nsd* php* proftpd* pure-ftpd* ruby* spamassassin* squirrelmail*
which I do not understand why they did that? Aren’t these updates important when they become available? Prior to the nss bug, the yum.conf file never had that. I contacted the host company and they responded with:
“This is to inform you that webmin handles its own installation of services through the rpm.versions system, so we need to exclude a number of packages .”
Now nothing seems to work like before. I use to be able to see my installed package updates in virtualmin and in webmin. Can anyone recommend any options I should take to try and correct things to the way they were? My host is not being helpful.
For more information on this, please check out the thread I made over at Centos earlier today(it was the first place that came to mind to ask for help after dealing with host): https://www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=50630&p=214939
Thank you in advance.
