yum-debug-restore — replay Yum transactions captured in a debug-dump file

Description

yum-debug-restore is a program which takes a gzipped file created by yum-debug-dump and acts on the information about installed packages contained within.

General Options

--output
Output the commands that would be run to stdout.
--shell=<file>
Output the commands that would be run to a file.
--install-latest
Ask yum to install the latest version of the given packages, instead of the version that was installed in the debug-dump file.
--ignore-arch
Ignore the architecture of the packages, so you can "restore" an i386 debug-dump on an x86_64 machine.
--filter-types=[install,remove,update,downgrade]
Only perform the given types of commands, so you can filter to just upgrades and installs.

Files

As yum-debug-restore 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:

/etc/yum.conf
/etc/yum/repos.d/
/var/cache/yum/
