I put this in yum.conf:
exclude=kernel* ivtv* nvidia* lirc*
When I wish to update the kernel and kmdls, I comment it out.

I used this the last time I upgraded with atrpms. It queries your installed
myth rpms and passes them on to yum. Can't guarantee it will work. Test it
rpm -qa | grep myth | tr -d "0-9." | sed 's/--.*$//g'| xargs
yum -y --disablerepo=livna upgrade

Sorry if this has been covered before but I've been reading this list and
upgrading and such for over a year and haven't quite figured it out yet.
Once I have all the hardware working (after upgrading or after setting up a
new box) I want to leave it alone... so I don't don't want to update kernels
or kernel modules. But occasionally I'd like to update mythtv to get fixes
from the fixes branch. In fact I wouldn't mind updating any user space
software. But "yum update" seems to want to upgrade everything.
I've seen messages indicating partial updates with atrpms is bad so yum
update \*myth*\ would not be wise.
What is the best way to do what I want without messing up dependencies?
Just do "yum update" and somehow remove the new kernel? Or maybe something
like yum update --exclude=<kernel>? What's the best known method for this?
