Question How to make obsolete packages?


Hello!
When I run yum check-update, I got:

Code:
#yum check-update

<omited>

Obsoleting Packages
libjpeg-turbo.x86_64                                                                 
    libjpeg.x86_64
When I create software repository using createrepo, is any way to specify obsolete packages?

Obsolete packages are ones that are installed BUT are not in the repo
there is not even the same version in there
so the os assumes that is is Obsolete and has been discontinued or replaced with some other program
