Description Rahul Sundaram 2013-02-08 20:52:36 UTC
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 08:51:28 UTC
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 16:58:45 UTC
any update here?

Comment 3 Ales Kozumplik 2013-10-14 06:05:05 UTC
no, not at the moment.

Comment 4 Zdeněk Pavlas 2013-11-19 13:20:35 UTC
I'll start porting the code from yum, but it'll probably need changes in librepo, too.

Comment 6 Ales Kozumplik 2014-02-03 09:25:16 UTC
Patches are upstream, this will get closed with the next DNF build.

Comment 10 Parag Nemade 2014-02-17 07:02:34 UTC
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 07:46:20 UTC
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 08:09:00 UTC
   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 14:51:33 UTC
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 14:52:24 UTC
As a result, yum check-update reports available updates, while dnf reports no updates available
