NAME

urpm::media - Media routines for urpmi  

SYNOPSIS

 

DESCRIPTION

read_config($urpm, $nocheck)
Loads /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg and performs basic checks. It does not handle old format: <name> <url> [with <path_hdlist>]
write_urpmi_cfg($urpm)
Writes the urpmi.cfg file.
configure($urpm, %options)
Read urpmi.cfg file as well as necessary synthesis files.

Options :

root (deprecated, set directly $urpm->{root})
cmdline_skiplist
download_callback (used by _auto_update_media)
callback (urpmf)
nodepslist (for urpmq, urpmf: when we don't need the synthesis)
no_skiplist (urpmf)
synthesis (use this synthesis file, and only this synthesis file)
parallel
usedistrib (otherwise uses urpmi.cfg)
media
excludemedia
sortmedia
update
searchmedia
needed_extra_media($urpm)
Return 2 booleans telling whether nonfree & tainted packages are installed respectively.
add_medium($urpm, $name, $url, $with_synthesis, %options)
Add a new medium and sync the config file accordingly.

It returns the new medium's name (might be different from the requested name if index_name was specified).

Options: ignore, index_name, nolock, update, virtual, media_info_dir, mirrorlist, zeroconf, with-dir, xml-info, on_the_fly

add_distrib_media($urpm, $name, $url, %options)
Add distribution media, according to url given. Returns the list of names of added media.

Options :

initial_number : when adding several numbered media, start with this number
probe_with : force use of rpms instead of using synthesis
ask_media : callback to know whether each media should be added
only_updates : only add ``update'' media (used by rpmdrake)
mirrorlist
zeroconf

Other options are passed to add_medium(): ignore, nolock, virtual

reconfig_urpmi($urpm, $rfile, $medium)
Read a reconfiguration file for urpmi, and reconfigure media accordingly. $rfile is the reconfiguration file (local), $name is the media name

the format is similar to the RewriteRule of mod_rewrite, so:

   PATTERN REPLACEMENT [FLAG]

where FLAG can be L or N

example of reconfig.urpmi:

   # this is an urpmi reconfiguration file
   /cauldron /cauldron/$ARCH

update_media($urpm, %options)
Update the urpmi database w.r.t. the current configuration. Takes care of modifications, and tries some tricks to bypass the recomputation of base files.

Recognized options :

all : all medias are being rebuilt
allow_failures: whereas failing to update a medium is non fatal
ask_retry : function called when a download fails. if it returns true, the download is retried
callback : UI callback
forcekey : force retrieval of pubkey
force : try to force rebuilding base files
nomd5sum : don't verify MD5SUM of retrieved files
nopubkey : don't use rpm pubkeys
probe_with : probe synthesis or rpms
quiet : download synthesis quietly
wait_lock : block until lock can be acquired
clean($urpm)
Clean params and depslist computation zone.
