Description dmetz 2000-07-28 20:38:46 UTC
I'l like to see an option to disable the md5 portion of the `rpm -V' cmd. I routinely use `rpm -V' with a perl filter to check the integrity of installed rpms. By sacrificing the thoroughness of the md5 check in a non-hostile environment performance of this check can be improved to make it a much more useful tool. Derald firstname.lastname@example.org

Agreed that "rpm -V" output would be enhanced by finer-grained control over each of the verification checks independently. Howvere, since rpm has far too many confusing command line options as it is, I believe that adding, say, 10 or so new command line options to enable/disable each of the verification checks independently is not needed at this time (hence I'm marking the request DEFERRED). Meanwhile, it ain't hard to filter rpm -V output , removing the MD5 changed indicator, if that's your pleasure.

rpm already has --nomd5 in verify mode to disable file md5 sum verification.
