Yum Update Notifier for KDE.
This little system tray tool calls in user configurable intervals "yum check-update" and signals with different icons whether new updates are available. If updates are available it can show you the list of possible updates and can initiate a yum update.
To configure the interval (in minutes) simply edit the file and change the CHECK_INTERVAL value.

- Ruby
- KDE Ruby Bindings aka Korundum
- None is needed; simply start the program.

Hehe. This is intentionally only working with Yum (so this is a feature ;-)), but it is possible to extend it to also support deb. Perhaps the actual update routine could be abstracted out of the core tool so that it could be extended for every package management system. This should be pretty easy. However, I need people then telling me what commands to call and how the output of these comments look, and who are willing to beta-test these extensions. So go ahead ;-)

 ignore packages

This is a much needed tool! Thanks!

It would be great if it were possible to add a list of packages to ignore - I have some packages which I do not want to update, even when updates are available. So, right now, yumkup always reports that updates are available.

Sure. This is a useful extension. I was already planning such a feature.

"$ man yum" gives:

Exclude a specific package by name or glob from updates on all repositories.
Configuration Option: exclude

This means that rather than using "$ yum check-update" to check the updates, if u use "$ yum --exclude=package_name check-update", that particular package will not be considered even if updates are available.

You cal put a line "exclude=package_name" in xxx.repo to disable updates using that particular repo.

I hope this will help!

 Slight Modification

I noticed that once the tray icon changed from a blue question mark to a green K, the text in the yellow box still said "Checking for updates".

So I added one line. Diff below:

*** yumkup.rb.orig 2006-04-27 10:49:00.000000000 -0400
--- yumkup.rb 2006-11-07 10:28:22.831705320 -0500
*************** class MySystemTray < KDE::SystemTray
*** 134,139 ****
--- 134,140 ----
puts 'Yum exit with status ' + result.to_s
if result == 0
puts 'No updates available'
+ Qt::ToolTip::add(self,"No updates available.")
elsif result == 100

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
