*** KYum is now hosted on Sourceforge! ***

KYum is a graphical user-frontend for the rpm package manager yum. You can view and modify repositories and yum.conf and control most of yum's operations with it in a convenient way.

Thanks to R. Wolters and J. Schmitt for their initial SPEC file versions and to all others who contributed to kyum's development in any way.


2005-07-24 V0.7.5 Steffen Offermann (steffen_ac@yahoo.com)

* Fix: Processes started within dialogs (e.g. to show
dependencies) were immediately killed due to a
forgotten line in the source.

* Actions view: The package list now has a title.

2005-07-23 V0.7.4 Steffen Offermann (steffen_ac@yahoo.com)

* Fix: Resizable dialogs now work as expected (thanks to
S. Pistone).

* Repository view: If possible, $basearch, $arch and $releasever
will be expanded to their actual values.

* Actions view: The context-menu item "Query Installed Version"
is now available in two versions: "short" and "extended" (using
"rpm -q" and "rpm -qi" respectively to retrieve the desired

* Before removing installed packages, a list of packages that rely
on these packages is displayed and the user must confirm that
all these packages are safe to be uninstalled.

2005-07-19 V0.7.3 Steffen Offermann (steffen_ac@yahoo.com)

* Fix: Results of "Find" operation were only shown in the output
view, not in the list view.

* Fix: "Clean yum's cache" dialog: "yum -y clean" was executed
instead of "yum -y clean all".

* Added info about yum's confusing behavior regarding the clean
operation (only the cache for enabled repositories will be

* Added context-menu to package list view. Currently available
menu options are:

- remove from list
- show package dependencies
- query installed version (via rpm).

2005-07-12 V0.7.2 Steffen Offermann (steffen_ac@yahoo.com)

* Selecting or deselecting packages while installing/updating
packages is now possible without any side-effects.

* The package version number will be appended to the name of
the package when uninstalling installed packages.

* The confirmation dialog when yum.conf and repositories have
been saved can now be disabled.

2005-06-03 V0.7.1 Steffen Offermann (steffen_ac@yahoo.com)

* Fix: KYum crashed, when the specified folder for *.repo files
did not exist.

* Enabled "Install"-action in Groups view. But still no fancy
group support other than the limited one provided by yum.

* The editor for yum.conf now is a set of edit fields with
context help.

New options unknown to KYum cannot (yet) be added from within
KYum but will be preserved and are editable if they exist in
yum.conf (i.e. you can still add new items to yum.conf outside
KYum). These are mostly options that are rarely used or make no
sense with KYum.

* Option "reposdir" in yum.conf will now be recognized and used.

* When installing/updating selected packages, the respective packages
will be removed from the displayed list of available/updatable
packages if the installation was successful (i.e. yum's exit code
was 0).

* Added information about number and total download size of selected

* Selected (checked) packages are highlighted in the list.

* Actions tab / Groups tab: The command line of the executed command
is shown in the output window.

* The supplied file kyum_sysinfo.py is now installed in
$(kde_datadir)/kyum instead of $(kde_bindir).

* Made some colors and flags configurable.

 Dangerous -y option

 by chrisjones051073 on: Jul 21 2005
Score 50%

Note sure if this is the best place for feature requests, but

PLEASE remove the "-y" you add to the yum commands, and add some user dialogue boxes instead (i.e. like yumex). This is VERY VERY dangerous, as when removing packages it will automatically remove dependant packages WIHOUT asking me if I want that !!

Don't get me wrong, I like kyum, but this problem makes it far to dangerous to use in my opinion.

I'll probably make that configurable in one of the next releases. Thank you for your suggestion!

 RPM for FC3?

Hi, Love the tool! Have an old version I installed for FC3. Is there an RPM for FC3 with the latest KYum version?

You can make your own RPM for FC3 from the Source RPM available at sourceforge. I cannot do that for you since I don't have FC3 on my system.

I've just updated to 7.5-1 from Fedora rawhide. Thanks for all your work. Having just spent a couple of frustrating weeks trying to get smartpm working correctly, I have come back to kyum. The killer feature for me would be an installed column. When listing the available packages, an installed column quickly lets you see what is already on the system, for comparison purposes. This column is invaluable for troubleshooting as well, for example when an update is interrupted and multiple versions wind up in various states on your system. I keep synaptic on my system for this purpose only. I hope this is a feature that lends itself to easy implementation from a coding standpoint...

It's the best GUI for YUM, yet.

It's still not approaching what I'd like to see (a Synaptic clone for YUM) but it's better than anything else out there. I use it regardless of what Desktop environment I'm in, since I always have a minimum of GNOME and KDE installed.

 Find Command

 by mlehman on: Dec 2 2005
Score 50%

I tried to use the find command to find all software that contained the word camera in the description. It uses the yum command yum -y info camera and comes up with no entries. If I uncheck the description box, it comes up with a host of entries and uses the yum command yum -y search camera. It then went into a frenzy and I had to shut down the program using ctrl c.

What am I doing wrong - or is this a bug?

My apologies for slow replies. I check this site very seldomly.

It's probably a bug. Which version of kyum are you working with? Have you tried the CVS version from the sourceforge site?

version 0.71

and no I haven't checked that version. I use stable/relatively stable repositories with yum so I'm probably behind the curve.
Thanks for the reply.

 kyum.i386 0.7.5-3.fc

Hi all. In Kyum i see the update kyum.i386 0.7.5-2.fc4 and 2 days after that kyum.i386 0.7.5-3.fc4kyum.i386.
But in Help about KYum it still says "KYum 0.7.5pree-001".
What is wrong? Is there in fact a version of 0.7.5-3 or is someone hacking yum?

Plz check and advise.

The current version is 0.7.5-3, but there is a later version in the CVS repository.

Unfortunately I have not yet found time to continue working at kyum since that release.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
