Description Jonathan Kamens 2003-11-03 09:54:45 EST
There should be an option to rpm --verify to tell it not to verify 
prelinking of all packages.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-12-06 08:44:44 EST
I disagree, the --verify output will spew spurious false messages
if --noprelink is added to the invocation.

Howvere, adding
   --define '__prelink_undo_cmd %{nil}'
will disable the prelink undo.

Add to /etc/popt
    rpm alias --noprelink --define '__prelink_undo_cmd %{nil}'
will disable the unprelinking.

If you mean that --noprelink should not even attempt to verify
prelinked libraries, that's only one of a whole class of file
selectors that would need doing. Filtering the output to remove
messages that you do not care to see is easy enough already.
