NAME ^

rurpmi - restricted urpmi

SYNOPSIS ^

    rurpmi [options] [package_name...]

DESCRIPTION ^

rurpmi is similar to urpmi, but has a stripped-down set of features. It's intended to be used by users without root privileges but with sudo rights on it, preventing any abuse of this tool to compromise the system.

With rurpmi, you can't install arbitrary rpm files; moreoever the --keep and --verify-rpm options are forced, and several dangerous options are forbidden (--root, --use-distrib, --env, --allow-nodeps, --allow-force, --force, --noscripts, --auto-update). Also, you won't be able to install rpms with bad signatures.

CAVEAT ^

This software is still experimental. While some operations are forbidden, there is no guarantee it is actually secure.

OPTIONS ^

The options are the same than urpmi ones.
