protect a pkg from updates in fedora

0 votes

I have enabled the rpmforge repo to get the flash-plugin because this seems to do what I want instead of the flash-plug that is in the supplemental repo. When the rpmforge pkg is install yum wants to update
it using the redhat repo. The version does not work as the sites I go to says it is too old. Yet the pkg from rpmforge works well.

How do I get yum to *not* want to upgrade this from the RH repo? I checked the yum and yum.conf man pages but I did not see exactly what I want to do there as an option.

I have been using Fedora since 2002....and at NO POINT have I ever installed anything even remotely related to KDE.

Fast forward to today, I get the usual notifications that "Updates Are Available"...through the Gnome notifications atop the screen midship....and I proceed to authorize them and install them. Now...Im one of those uptight people who like to "watch" things as they get installed...and I started seeing things like:kf5-kbookmarkskf5-kdedkemoticons....and a slew of other "K" related things.

Is this something to be expected from future updates?....and how do I get rid of these?

I am moving from Fedora to Ubuntu.
In Fedora , running "which AliasName" shows the alias.

For example, if I have

$alias myAlias='echo test'

$which myAlias
alias myAlias='echo test'

In Ubuntu, this does not work.

alias myAlias='echo test'
$which myAlias

shows nothing.

Any idea - is there any setting or any way to get the same result as in Fedora ?

CRTL + ALT + F3 and
