       yum verify plugin


       yum [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:
        * verify
        * verify-rpm
        * verify-all

       all  of  which  take  the  same  arguments as the list yum command, obviously you can only
       verify packages that are installed on the system.

       verify Is the generic verification command, and  is  intented  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.


       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

              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/*'


       yum (8)
       yum.conf (5)
       the verify.conf file in /etc/yum/plugins.d

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