Hi All

My Fedora 18 system currently has updates available. How can I ensure that the updates it's trying to install are all stable updates and not beta or alpha updates that are going to trash my system? This seems like it should be pretty straight forward but I'm not seeing any settings for it anywhere. Perhaps it has to do with the yum repositories that are setup?

Thanks much!

By default, you would only get stable updates. You can find the list of repositories at /etc/yum.repos.d and yum repolist command will show you the enabled repositories. Unless you specifically enabled updates-testing repository, you don't have to worry about it. However if you want to participate in testing the updates, refer to the feedback guidelines.

You can also launch Software and select Software Sources from its menu (upper left portion of your display) to see for yourself that testing updates are not enabled by default.
