I dont see how this is relevant to this thread, the *only* bit of real
info passed down from the OP is dhcrelay, which comes from the dhcp
suite, and I am unaware of anyone shipping a different dhcp suite.

And I hope you are being a good community member and submitting bug
reports so something can be done about that...

err ? yum exclude=* ? yes, thats one way to stop updates. Or do you mean
to imply exclude the software you are using on the machine ? which, to
me, is silly - since arent those the bits of software you *really* do
want bugfix / security fix/ updates for, since they are in production
and therefore pose the largest targest.
