Description of problem:
I'd like to be able to verify, from a directory of rpm packages, only
those packages which are installed on the system, and ignore all others.

I know I can do this with a little scripting, but it's quite slow and

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-06-20 13:51:52 UTC
You want to verify installed headers and files from the original
packages? Try
    cd /directory/of/rpms
    rpm -Vp *.rpm 2>&1 | grep -v missing
is neither slow nor cumbersome.

Not exactly what you asked for, as files that have been erased
in installed packages will be undetected, but pretty darn close.
