Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have configured several repositories on my CentOS 5 box. As an effect, command:

yum search nagios

outputs just mess - thousands of duplicated packages.

To make my life easier I would like for example to search for package nagios only in specific repo, like rpmforge and with minimum version '3', for example.

How can I achieve this?

# yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rpmforge list avaiable 'nagios-3*'

UPDATE Tue Jul 10 18:04:26 ICT 2012:

# yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rpmforge list avaiable nagios | awk '$2 >= 3 { print $0 }'

It does not work as expected. It will show me packages only in version '3' but not in version 4 and 5. –  bluszcz Jul 10 '12 at 10:48
    
Try the updated command that I've appended to my answer. –  quanta Jul 10 '12 at 11:09
