FAQ
Thanks,

I'm trying to keep CentOS 5.5 from upgrading to 5.6 because of my
issue with the time sync. I thought I had it figured out till today. I
have tried google for help but with no luck. Can someone point me to a
page or link that will give me a good idea as to how to stop the upgrade
but still allow me to update my 5.5 packages?

This is what I tried, that is not working now.

I edited "/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo" to look as such.

    you cannot do that.
    it's centos 5. Updating a 5.x install will bring you to the latest of 5,
    which is currently 5.6 + [updates since the 5.6 release].

    check out the centos FAQs, it's gotta be there.

    Is it just the time sync pagage (ntp-4.2.2p1-9.el5.centos.2.1) that is
    giving you trouble? In which case just add an excludepkgs= line in the
    updates. (Like this [from a C4 system using a CentOSPlus kernel and
    php packages]:

    ..
    #released updates
    [update]
    nameÎntOS-$releasever - Updates
    mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=updates
    #baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/updates/$basearch/
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-centos4
    priority=1
    protect=1
    excludepkgs=php* kernel kernel-devel kernel-doc
    ..

    This is what I tried, that is not working now.

    I edited "/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo" to look as such.

    <snip>
    [base]
    name=CentOS-5.5 - Base
    ## name=CentOS-5.5 - Base
    mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5.5&arch=$basearch&repo=os

    In your case, it was a specific kernel that was giving you problems, if
    I remember correctly.

    You can put this in your yum.conf file to prevent upgrading the kernel:

    exclude=kernel kernel-devel kernel-PAE

    Now, eventually you will have other things not work without an upgraded
    kernel. For example, any "kmods" will eventually not upgrade as they
    will require newer kernels in the future.

    You can also point only at our vault if you really want everything to
    stay at the 5.5 level ... but I do not recommend it.

    The vault path would be:

    baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/5.5/<repo>/$basearch/

    (where <repo> is os, updates, extras, centosplus, etc.)

    You can not use mirrorlist in that scenario.
