yum-debug-restore - Man Page

redirecting to DNF debug Plugin

Description

The plugin provides two dnf commands:

debug-dump

Writes system RPM configuration to a dump file

debug-restore

Restore the installed packages to the versions written in the dump file. By default, it does not remove already installed versions of install-only packages and only marks those versions that are mentioned in the dump file for installation. The final decision on which versions to keep on the system is left to dnf and can be fine-tuned using the installonly_limit (see dnf.conf(5)) configuration option.

NOTE:

DNF and Yum debug files are not compatible and thus can't be used by the other program.

Synopsis
