Specify repo ids to query, can be specified multiple times (default is all enabled).


In addition to the default set, query the given additional repository, even if it is disabled in YUM configuration.  Can be used multiple times.


Do not query the given repository, even if it is enabled in YUM configuration.  Can be used multiple times.


Specify a path or url to a repository (same path as in a baseurl) to add to the repositories for this query. This option can be used multiple times. If you want to view only the pkgs from this repository combine this with --repoid. The repoid for the repository is specified by REPOID.

-C, --cache

Tells repoquery to run entirely from YUM cache - does not download any metadata or update the cache. Queries in this mode can fail or give partial/incorrect results if the cache isn't fully populated beforehand with eg "yum makecache".


Use a temp dir for storing/accessing yum-cache.


Sync anything that is found to the yumdb, if available.
