Yum would always default to installing the highest version available, unless you provide the specific version number at the command.

AFAIK it installs the most recent version. Why would you expect it to do anything else?

Yum gets its packages from default repository which contains the latest packages unless you don't change it manually.

When I do a yum list installed and I get a list of the installed packages for the local system.

However, I have no idea where this data is coming from, is it coming from the
/var/lib/rpm ,
/var//lib/yum/yumdb

or perhaps somewhere else? Is there a switch I could use to change the db, or to point to a different yumdb/dir?

I've got a drive from a separate/older system that I'd like to mount/examine to see what packages where installed with yum on that drive...

the "installroot" switch appears to be used to chroot into a separate location for the yum.repos.d" - but I could be wrong..

Given a list of rpms on one system (rpm -qa > list.txt), is there a one-shot command that I can run on another system to remove all of the rpms not listed and add any that are on the list and not present on the second system?

I have a small problem with some packages : I was doing an update over ssh and my connection was interrupted .. now i have a lots of duplicates and if i try to remove them, yum tries to uninstall all system (447 packages 1.4 gb)

Any idea how can I clean this mess? It would be pretty bad if the machine needs to be re-installed only because the connection went bad during the process...
