rpm-plugin-dbus-announce - Man Page

DBus plugin for the RPM Package Manager


The plugin writes basic information about rpm transactions to the system dbus - like packages installed or removed. Other programs can subscribe to the signals to be notified of the packages on the system change.

DBus Signals

Sends StartTransaction and EndTransaction messages from the /org/rpm/Transaction object with the org.rpm.Transaction interface.

The signal passes the DB cookie as a string and the transaction id as an unsigned 32 bit integer.


There are currently no options for this plugin in particular. See rpm-plugins(8) on how to control plugins in general.
