       repoquery - query information from Yum repositories


       repoquery [options] <item ...>
       repoquery -a [options]


       repoquery  is  a  program  for querying information from YUM repositories similarly to rpm


              List valid queryformat tags and exit..

       -v, --version
              Report program version and exit.

              Specify which repository to query. Using this option disables all repositories  not
              explicitly  enabled  with  --repoid option (can be used multiple times). By default
              repoquery uses whatever repositories are enabled in YUM configuration.

              In addition to the default set, query the given additional repository, even  if  it
              is disabled in YUM configuration.  Can be used multiple times.

              Do not query the given repository, even if it is enabled in YUM configuration.  Can
              be used multiple times.

              Specify a path or url to a repository (same path as in a baseurl)  to  add  to  the
              repositories for this query. This option can be used multiple times. If you want to
              view only the pkgs from this repository combine this with --repoid. The repoid  for
              the repository is specified by <repoid>.

              Enable YUM plugin support.

       -q, --query
              For rpmquery compatibility, doesn't do anything.

       -h, --help
              Help; display a help message and then quit.

              Run quietly: no warnings printed to stderr.

              Produce verbose output.

       -C, --cache
              Tells  repoquery to run entirely from YUM cache - does not download any metadata or
              update the cache. Queries in this mode can fail or give  partial/incorrect  results
              if the cache isn't fully populated beforehand with eg "yum makecache".

              Create  and  use  a  private  cache  instead of the main YUM cache. This is used by
              default when run as non-root user.

       -c <config file>, --config=<config file>
              Use alternative config file (default is /etc/yum.conf).

              Pretend the current release version is the given string. This is very  useful  when
              combined with --installroot. You can also use --releasever=/ to take the releasever
              information from outside the installroot.  Note  that  with  the  default  upstream
              cachedir, of /var/cache/yum, using this option will corrupt your cache (and you can
              use $releasever in your cachedir configuration to stop this).

              Set any config option in yum config or repo files. For options in the global config
              just use: --setopt=option=value for repo options use: --setopt=repoid.option=value


       -i, --info
              Show general information about package similarly to "rpm -qi"

       -l, --list
              List files in package.

       -R, --requires
              List package dependencies.

              When used with --requires, resolve capabilities to originating packages.

              List capabilities package provides.

              List capabilities obsoleted by package.

              List capabilities conflicting with package.

              List package changelog.

              Show  a  location  where  the  package could be downloaded from.  For example: wget
              `repoquery --location yum`

       -s, --source
              Show package source RPM name.

       --srpm Operate on corresponding source RPM.

       --groupmember PACKAGE
              List the repodata groups (yumgroups.xml) belongs to (if any).

       --nvr  Use name-version-release output format (rpm query default)

              Use name-epoch:version-release.architecture output format (default)

              Use epoch:name-version-release.architecture output format  (easier  to  parse  than

       --qf=FORMAT, --queryformat=FORMAT
              Specify  custom  output  format  for  queries.  You  can  add  ":date",  ":day" and
              ":isodate" to all the tags that are a time, and you can add ":k", ":m", ":g",  ":t"
              and ":h" to sizes. You can also specify field width as in sprintf (Eg. %-20{name})

       --output [text|ascii-tree|dot-tree]
              Output         format         which         can         be         used        with
              --requires/--whatrequires/--obsoletes/--conflicts.  Default output is 'text'.

       --level [all|any int]
              In combination with --output ascii-tree|dot-tree this option specifies  the  number
              of level to print on the tree. Default level is 'all'.


       -a, --all
              Query  all available packages (for rpmquery compatibility / shorthand for repoquery

       -f, --file FILE
              Query package owning FILE.

       --whatobsoletes CAPABILITY
              Query all packages that obsolete CAPABILITY.

       --whatconflicts CAPABILITY
              Query all packages that conflict with CAPABILITY.

       --whatprovides CAPABILITY
              Query all packages that provide CAPABILITY.

       --whatrequires CAPABILITY
              Query all packages that require CAPABILITY.

              When used with --whatrequires, look for non-explicit dependencies  in  addition  to
              explicit  ones (e.g. files and Provides in addition to package names).  This is the

              When used with --whatrequires, search for dependencies only exactly as given.  This
              is effectively the opposite of --alldeps.

              When used with --whatrequires, query packages recursively.

              Limit  the  query  to  packages  of  given  architecture(s).  Valid  values are all
              architectures known to rpm/yum such as 'i386' and 'src' for source RPMS. Note  that
              repoquery  will  now  change  yum's  "arch"  to the first value in the archlist. So
              "--archlist=i386,i686" will change yum's canonical arch to i386, but allow packages
              of i386 and i686.

              Limit  what  packages  are  considered  for  the  query. Valid values for WHAT are:
              installed, available, recent, updates, extras, all and repository (default).

              Restrict query ONLY to installed pkgs - disables all repos and only acts on rpmdb.


       -i, --info
              Show general information about group.

       -l, --list
              List packages belonging to (required by) group.

              Specify what type of packages are queried from groups. Valid values  for  WHAT  are
              all, mandatory, default, optional.

              List groups required by group.


       -a     Query all available groups.

       -g, --group
              Query groups instead of packages.


       List all packages whose name contains 'perl':
              repoquery '*perl*'

       List all packages depending on openssl:
              repoquery --whatrequires openssl

       List all package names and the repository they come from, nicely formatted:
              repoquery -a --qf "%-20{repoid} %{name}"

       List name and summary of all available updates (if any), nicely formatted:
              repoquery -a --pkgnarrow=updates --qf "%{name}:\n%{summary}\n"

       List optional packages in base group:
              repoquery -g --grouppkgs=optional -l base

       List build requirements from 'anaconda' source rpm:
              repoquery --requires anaconda.src

       List packages which BuildRequire gail-devel
              repoquery --archlist=src --whatrequires gail-devel
                NB:  This  command  will only work if you have repositories enabled which include


       Specifying package names
              A package can be referred to in all queries with any of the following:


              For example: repoquery -l kernel-2.4.1-10.i686
              Additionally wildcards (shell-style globs) can be used.


       As repoquery uses YUM libraries for retrieving all  the  information,  it  relies  on  YUM
       configuration  for  its  default  values  like  which  repositories  to  use.  Consult YUM
       documentation for details:



       yum.conf (5)
