    107107Another solution is to find a repository that provides an upgraded of the package that "needs" the old packages and add it to your yum configuration.  Hopefully the new version of that package will have dependencies on the upgraded package, in our case libgcj.so.5, and yum will take care of everything.

    129129===== Q. 8: Yum is very nice at updating my kernel, but I use the (nvidia | openafs | other module) and yum doesn't seem to handle it well.  Could you fix yum to handle this for me? =====

    131 '''A.''' This is a known and non-trivial problem, but people are talking and working on it.  Please read ideas on [https://lists.dulug.duke.edu/pipermail/yum-devel/2005-June/thread.html#1232 this plugin] and messages from [http://www.google.com/search?q=yum+kernel+module+site:lists.dulug.duke.edu&num=20&hl=en&lr=&start=20&sa=N the Google search of the yum archives] to get more details.

    144144===== Q. 10: How can I search the mailing list archives? ===== 
    145145 
    146 '''A.''' One easy way is to use the google site: keyword pointed at the server for the mailing list [http://www.google.com/search?num=20&hl=en&lr=&q=your_search_term+site%3Alists.dulug.duke.edu&btnG=Search thusly.]  Of course, you should replace "your_search_term" in that example to your search term.

    164 Note that you do not need yum to create a repo for 2.2.x or later.  You can use the createrepo package available from a variety of places including the Duke Metadata link given above or available from places like Dag's repository.

    176175===== Q. 13: If the most recent version of a package is available in multiple repositories, how can I instruct yum to consistently pull it from a specific repository?  Stated differently, how can I give priority to a certain mirror or my local repositories? =====
