package remove through yum ?

Hello everyone,

I have configured local repository in RHEL5.

I have one problem regarding removel of package trough yum.

when I remove any package by

#yum remove packagename

It also asks for any dependencies to remove , at this point what if I want to remove the package without removing dependencies like as I can do with rpm command

#rpm -e package --nodeps

Then why don't you use rpm? Yum's very idea is about package reposities and dependency handling (otherwise you'd just use a script that ran wget and rpm, or something), so get used to it. On the other hand rpm is the core of the package managing system; if you know you can do that with it, why would you use yum (which is, if you ask me, no faster to use than rpm -- often vice versa).
