NAME         top

       yum verify plugin

SYNOPSIS         top

       yum [options] verify [package ...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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:
        * verify
        * verify-rpm
        * verify-all

       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
              by default.

              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.

EXAMPLES         top

       To do the same as rpm -Va, use:

              yum verify-rpm

       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/*'

BUGS         top

       Currently yum-verify does not do verify-script checking or dependency checking,
       only file checking.
