NAME ^

urpmi.files - files used by the urpmi tools

DESCRIPTION ^

The urpmi tools (urpmi, urpme, urpmi.addmedia, urpmi.update, etc.) use several different files to store the state of the RPM repositories (or media). This manual page documents them.

FILES ^

/var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.<media_name>.cz

Contains information about all known packages.

/etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg

Contains media descriptions. See urpmi.cfg(5).

/etc/urpmi/proxy.cfg

Contains proxy descriptions for http and ftp media. See proxy.cfg(5).

/etc/urpmi/parallel.cfg

Contains the descriptions of parallel aliases, one per line. Their general format is <alias>:<interface[(media)]>:<interface_parameter> where <alias> is a symbolic name to identify the parallel alias, <interface> is one of the parallel install methods (can be ka-run or ssh), <media> is a media list (as given to the --media parameter), and finally <interface_parameter> is a specific interface parameter list like -c ssh -m node1 -m node2 for ka-run extension or node1:node2 (list of node hostnames) for ssh extension.

/etc/urpmi/skip.list

The list of packages that should not be automatically updated when using --auto-select. It contains one package expression per line; either a package name, or a regular expression (if enclosed in slashes /) to match the name of packages against. (Actually, it's matched against the full name of the package, which has the form name-version-release.arch.)

/etc/urpmi/inst.list

The list of packages that should be installed instead of updated. It has the same format as the skip.list.

/etc/urpmi/prefer.list

The list of packages that should be preferred (useful for choices with --auto). It contains one package expression per line; either a package name, or a regular expression (if enclosed in slashes /) to match the name of packages against.

/etc/urpmi/prefer.vendor.list

Vendor specific version of similar to prefer.list.

/etc/urpmi/netrc

This file is handled by urpmi: when adding a media from an URL containing a password, urpmi will remove the password from the URL written into urpmi.cfg and write it in this file.

/var/lib/rpm/installed-through-deps.list

Contains the name of the packages that were selected indirectly, ie not requested by user (eg: libxxxN). It is used to detect orphans (try urpme --auto-orphans and see).

The format of the file is: one package name per line, or optionally "xxx (required by ...)"
