Tell yum to ignore a single dependency - nodeps

Generally yum doesn't have options to ignore a single package from the dependencies. Option --skip-broken ignores all unresolved dependences.

You can try yum --exclude=packagename but it excludes a specific package by name or glob from updates on all repositories, not from dependencies.


rpm -Uvh --nodeps $(repoquery --location winswitch)
