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 ...)''
