Yum list display


When I do a 'yum list all | grep samba' the display shows some packages that say 'base' to the right in the column where other packages show as installed. I know I did a yum install of a few of the packages that say base and I thought that would install them. When I tried to erase one of the base packages it says 'available but not installed'. Can someone tell me what the word base means here and perhaps why it doesn't show as installed? I'm using Centos 5.5.

"installed" means it's installed, "base" means it's not installed and is available in the base repository.

FYI, I had to erase the installed version of samba to get the version I wanted installed.

yum erase samba-common.i386
yum erase samba.i386
yum install samba3x-common.i386
yum install samba3x.i386

Moving forward.

unless you upgraded to CentOS 5.9
the 5.5 repos have been deleted and moved to the historical archives " the vault "
5.5 is 2 ( two ) years and 4( four) versions out of support

you will have many problems trying to install things to CentOS 5.5

Actually, my link is just for RHEL/Centos 5.x manual generally, not 5.5 specifically; I should have worded it differently.
