Coming from an ubuntu perspective, if I want to check to see what additional packages will be installed/upgraded I can use
apt-get --simulate install <package name>
Is there something similar for yum? Our Red hat box (yum) is our production server, so I would like to see exactly what will be happening before I actually install some package.
Couldn't really find a good solution, someone suggested:
yum --assumeno install <package name>
but this returned:
Command line error: no such option: --assumeno
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.6 (Tikanga)
Any ideas or suggestions would be welcome.
