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 1.

       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

              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.
