RPM-SYSTEMD-INHIBIT(8)                            RPM-SYSTEMD-INHIBIT(8)

NAME         top

       rpm-plugin-systemd-inhibit - Plugin for the RPM Package Manager

Description         top

       This plugin for RPM prevents the system to enter shutdown, sleep
       or idle mode while there is a rpm transaction running to prevent
       system corruption that can occur if the transaction is
       interrupted by a reboot.

       This is achieved by using the inhibit DBUS interface of systemd.
       The call is roughly equivalent to executing

       systemd-inhibit --mode=block --what=idle:sleep:shutdown --who=RPM
       --why="Transaction running"

       See systemd-inhibit(1) for the details of this mechanism.

       It is strongly advised to have the plugin installed on all
       systemd based systems.

Prerequisites         top

       For the plugin to work systemd has to be used as init system and
       though the DBUS system bus must be available.  If the plugin
       cannot access the interface it gives a warning but does not stop
       the transaction.

Configuration         top

       There are currently no options for this plugin in particular.
       See rpm-plugins(8) on how to control plugins in general.
