yum-debug-dump — write system RPM configuration to a debug-dump file




yum-debug-dump is a program which creates a gzipped file containing a lot of information useful to developers trying to debug a problem.

By default it will output a file to the current working directory named yum_debug_dump-<hostname>-<time>.txt.gz. This file contains no private information but does contain a complete list of all packages you have installed, all packages available in any repository, important configuration and system information. You can view this file using the 'zless' command.

You can use the coresponding program yum-debug-restore to act on this file and restore a set of packages (much like dump/restore).


As yum-debug-dump uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the information, it relies on YUM configuration for its default values like which repositories to use. Consult YUM documentation for details:
