Description dmetz 2000-07-28 16:38:46 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
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.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-07-31 11:27:34 EDT
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.
