Description Christian Krause 2006-05-21 17:42:28 EDT
rpm -V <package> verifies certain properties of the files of a package: size,
MD5 sum, permissions, ownership, ...

recently a check for the security context was added: 

rpm -V glibc:
Package glibc-2.4-8:
........C   /usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules.cache

Unfortunately the "C" isn't described in "man rpm". 

rpm version 2.4.2, release 15.2

This is only a documentation problem and can be fixed easily - e.g.:

diff -uNr rpm-4.4.2.old/doc/rpm.8 rpm-4.4.2/doc/rpm.8
--- rpm-4.4.2.old/doc/rpm.8     2003-12-30 08:14:50.000000000 -0500
