This plugin extends yum with some commands that give verification
information on the installed system, much like rpm -V. You can
change how the verification is done and which files it applies
to. In case any mismatches are found, the exit status is set to
added yum commands are:
all of which take the same arguments as the list yum command. You
can only verify packages that are installed on the system.
verify Is the generic verification command, and is intended to
give the most useful output. It removes all false matches
due to multilib and ignores changes to configuration files
Does the same checks as rpm -V.
Is used to list all the differences, including some that
rpm itself will ignore.
These are the options added to yum that are available in the
verify commands. They are:
This option is used to limit the filenames that the
packages will perform verification.
This option is only useful in the generic verify command,
and will enable/disable verification of files that are
tagged as configuration files.
To do the same as rpm -Va, use:
To verify the packages starting with the name yum, use:
yum verify 'yum*'
To verify the binaries that are in a bin directory, use:
yum verify --verify-filenames='*bin/*'
To verify all include files, Eg. for multilib problems, use:
yum verify-all --verify-filenames='/usr/include/*'
Currently yum-verify does not do verify-script checking or dependency checking,
only file checking.
