NAME         top

       yum-ovl - Performs an initial copy-up of yum(8) package database.

OPTIONS         top

       -d debug-level If debug level is 2 and more, print out the number
       of files copied up from the lower layer

DESCRIPTION         top

       Opening a file on OverlayFS in read-only mode causes the file
       lower layer to be opened, then later on, if the same file is
       in write mode, a copy-up into the upper    layer    takes
       resulting into a new file being opened.
       Since yum(8) needs to open the RPMdb first read-only, and then
       also with write access, we need to copy-up the files beforehand
       make sure that the access is consistent.

FILES         top

       /usr/lib/yum-plugins/ovl.py Plugin itself

       /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/ovl.conf Configuration file allowing to
       enable/disable the plugin
