Re: Meaning of the colorized output of yum in CentOS 5.5

I am not unable to tell you why are you getting by the yum and I am not able to tell you the meaning of the color. However I am suggesting the below mentioned command which you should run on the terminal and I am hoping that the command which I have mentioned over here would be helpful to you.
Code:
man yum.conf
So run the above mentioned command and let me know whether it helped you out or not.
