yum-verify (1) - Linux Man Pages
NAMEyum verify plugin
SYNOPSISyum [options] verify [package ...]
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.
added yum commands are:
all of which take the same arguments as the list yum command, obviously you can only verify packages that are installed on the system.
- 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.
- Is meant to be 100% compatible with rpm -V output, and any differences should be considered as bugs.
- Is used to list all the differences, including some that rpm itself will ignore.
GENERAL OPTIONSThese 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:
- 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/*'

Currently yum-verify does not do verify-script checking or dependency checking, only file checking. Should you find any other bugs, you should first consult the FAQ section on http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq and if unsuccessful in finding a resolution contact the mailing list: yum-devel [at] lists.baseurl.org.
