Description Edward Kuns 1999-06-29 11:53:37 EDT
If I recall correctly, I used to be able to verify against a
package file instead of against the rpm database.  "rpm -q"
returns rpm-3.0-6.0.

Here is an example:

[root@kilroy /RPMS]# rpm -Vp pump-0.6.7-1.i386.rpm
package pump-0.6.7-1.i386.rpm is not installed

(I chose pump because it's a short name and not because of
anything with that package.)

Confirmed in test lab.  Looks like this command should work according
to the man page.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-30 09:50:59 EDT
This has been fixed in later versions or rpm. Use the pre-release
version of rpm-3.0.2 in Raw Hide (ftp://rawhide.redhat.com) or
the released rpm-3.0.1-12* from ftp.rpm.org.
