Description Edward Kuns 1999-06-29 15:43:15 UTC
rpm -V complains about many, many files in kernel-source and
kernel-headers once one has made a kernel.  A wonderful
enhancement would be to mark, somehow, all the files that
one expects to change in these rpm files.  For example, all
the ".depend" files.  I have pages and pages of "rpm -V"
complaints in kernel-headers and kernel-source.

I know this is normal behavior.  My wish is for some way to
mark files that one expects to change so rpm -V (perhaps
with some other option) won't list such files.  When using
the output of "rpm -Va" to look for system problems, it
would make life much much easier!
