RFE: rpm -V no md5 option
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
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
By sacrificing the thoroughness of the md5 check in a non-hostile
performance of this check can be improved to make it a much more useful
Agreed that "rpm -V" output would be enhanced by finer-grained control over
the verification checks independently. Howvere, since rpm has far too many
command line options as it is, I believe that adding, say, 10 or so new command
options to enable/disable each of the verification checks independently is not
at this time (hence I'm marking the request DEFERRED).
Meanwhile, it ain't hard to filter rpm -V output , removing the MD5 changed
if that's your pleasure.
rpm already has --nomd5 in verify mode to disable file md5 sum verification.
