Description

The solv tool demos some features of the libsolv library. It is not meant to replace a real package manager, for example it does not cache downloaded packages.

--root ROOTDIR

Install packages using ROOTDIR as root of the filesystem. This also means that the package database of ROOTDIR will be used.

--clean

Also get rid of no longer needed packages when erasing, like libraries that have been used by the erased packages.

--best

Force usage of the best package (normally the one with the highest version) for install and update operations.

--testcase

Write a testcase after dependency solving.

The following options can be used to filter the packages. If the same option is used multiple times, the result is ORed together.

-i

Limit the packages to installed ones.

-r REPO

Limit the packages to the specified repository.

--arch ARCHITECTURE
