rpmprune - Remove unneeded files from a list of RPM package files
rpmprune [ --newer ] [ --older ] [ --equal ] [ --uninst ]
[ --invert ] filelist ...
tool is a simple example of using some of the RPM
With rpm version 3 and newer, multiple files given on the command-line
for an install, uninstall or update command are treated as a single
transaction. If any of the files in the set cannot be acted upon, the
whole transaction must be rejected. This is inconvenient for casual package
upgrades where a directory may have many rpm files, some of which are
already installed. A command of:
rpm -Uhv *.rpm
would fail, as one (or more) files in the set is already installed. This
can lead to careless use of options such as "--force"
In the simplest usage, this tool eases that situation by allowing:
rpm -Uhv `rpmprune *.rpm`
When the back-ticks are evaluated, rpmprune
has only echoed the names of
those files that are either newer than their installed counterparts, or are
not installed at all.
For maximum flexibility, rpmprune
supports more options than anyone will
realistically put to use:
Print a summary of the options and general usage.
- ---newer (--nonewer)
If selected, all files that are newer than their installed counterparts
will be echoed. Prefix with ``no'' to suppress the printing of these.
- ---older (--noolder)
If selected, all files that are older than their installed counterparts
will be echoed. Prefix with ``no'' to suppress them, instead.
- ---equal (--noequal)
If selected, all files that are the same version as their installed
counterparts will be echoed. Prefix with ``no'' to suppress them, instead.
- ---uninst (--nouninst)
If selected, all files that are for packages not currently installed on
the system will be echoed. Prefix with ``no'' to suppress them, instead.
Invert the logic of all four of the previous selectors.
Without any arguments, rpmprune acts as if the following were the command
rpmprune --newer --noolder --noequal --uninst ...
option is applied last, after all others have been processed.
