rpmdb - Man Page

RPM Database Tool


rpmdb {--initdb|--rebuilddb}

rpmdb {--verifydb}

rpmdb {--exportdb|--importdb}


The general form of an rpmdb command is

rpm {--initdb|--rebuilddb} [-v] [--dbpath DIRECTORY] [--root DIRECTORY]

Use --initdb to create a new database if one doesn't already exist (existing database is not overwritten), use --rebuilddb to rebuild the database indices from the installed package headers.

--verifydb performs a low-level integrity check on the database.

--exportdb exports the database in header-list format, suitable for transfporting to another host or database type.

--importdb imports a database from a header-list format as created by --exportdb.

rpm --help - as rpm supports customizing the options via popt aliases it's impossible to guarantee that what's described in the manual matches what's available.
