Description Rahul Sundaram 2013-02-08 15:52:36 EST
Description of problem:

delta rpm support is there by default in yum since yum-presto plugin is integrated.  dnf should support this functionality as well as potentially support delta for the metadata as well if thats possible.
Comment 1 Ales Kozumplik 2013-02-11 03:51:28 EST
Support for delta metadata is not available in yum either yet. I'll look into the delta rpm downloads.
Comment 2 Parag Nemade 2013-10-12 12:58:45 EDT
any update here?
Comment 3 Ales Kozumplik 2013-10-14 02:05:05 EDT
no, not at the moment.
Comment 4 Zdeněk Pavlas 2013-11-19 08:20:35 EST
I'll start porting the code from yum, but it'll probably need changes in librepo, too.
Comment 6 Ales Kozumplik 2014-02-03 04:25:16 EST
Patches are upstream, this will get closed with the next DNF build.

Comment 10 Parag Nemade 2014-02-17 02:02:34 EST
How should I get this delta rpm support. I am daily seeing "dnf update" command giving me few package updates but in the whole transaction log in the gnome-terminal, I see no where word delta or drpms. So, I am unsure whether delta rpm support is working or not. I am using Fedora 20 and dnf-0.4.14-1.fc20.noarch
Comment 11 Ales Kozumplik 2014-02-17 02:46:20 EST
Parag, this can be enabled with 'deltarpm' per-repo config option: http://akozumpl.github.io/dnf/conf_ref.html
Comment 12 Parag Nemade 2014-02-17 03:09:00 EST
   Thank you. I got the deltarpm support working successfully. I only added following line in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf [main] section
Comment 13 ILMostro 2014-04-09 10:51:33 EDT
I'm assuming this may be related to the differences I see in available updates between running dnf check-update and yum check-update.  deltarpms are enabled on my system when using yum, though dnf is not using deltarpms.
Comment 14 ILMostro 2014-04-09 10:52:24 EDT
As a result, yum check-update reports available updates, while dnf reports no updates available
