Urpm-tools is a set of utilities for manipulating urpmi repositories.

Urpm-tools are partially based on yum-utils but significantly extends their functionality. For convenience, utilities from urpm-tools have similar names as their analogues from yum-utils and the same options for the same actions.

Installation

1. Add media where the newest version of urpm-tools can be found.

For 32-bit system run:

sudo urpmi.addmedia akirilenko_personal http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/akirilenko_personal/repository/rosa2012lts/i586/main/release/

For 64-bit system run:

sudo urpmi.addmedia akirilenko_personal http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/akirilenko_personal/repository/rosa2012lts/x86_64/main/release/

2. Install urpm-tools package

sudo urpmi urpm-tools

List of Tools

Tool Description
urpm-downloader download binary, source or debuginfo packages with all dependencies (this tool combines functionality of yum-downloader and debuginfo-install from yum-utils)
urpm-package-cleanup manage package cleanup - look for duplicates and outstanding dependency problems
urpm-repoclosure detect unresolved dependencies in repository
urpm-repodiff compare two or more repositories, returns a list of added, removed or changed packages
urpm-repograph generate a full package dependency graph for repository in dot format
urpm-repomanage analyze a directory of rpm packages, return a list of newest or oldest packages
urpm-reposync synchronize with remote repository (analogue of distrosync from yum-utils)

For completeness, one should note that some possibilities provided by yum-utils and other auxiliary yum tools are already supported by urpmi & co.:

Yum Tool Urpmi analogue Description
yum-builddep urpmi --buildrequires install packages required to build given SRPM (using the package itself or its spec file)
createrepo genhdlist2 create repository from a set of packages
repoquery urpmq query repository for package information (in the similar way like rpm queries local rpmdb)

positional arguments:
  packages              Package name(s) to download. It can contain not only
                        package names, but (S)RPM files too. In this case
                        package name extracted from this file will be used

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit

                        be processed

If none of the options -b, -s, -d turned on, it will be treated as -b

urpm-package-cleanup

Find problems in the rpmdb of system and correct them.

The tool can perform the following actions:

  1. Look for situation when multiple versions of the same package are installed; the tool can automatically uninstall all versions except the latest one.
  2. Look for installed packages that are not available in any configured repository (this is just a wrapper for `urpmq --not-available`).
  3. Look for installed packages that have unmet dependencies.
  4. List "leaf" nodes in the local RPM database. Leaf nodes are RPMs that are not relied upon by any other RPM.

Usage:

urpm-package-cleanup.py [-h] [--qf QF] [--auto] [--version] [--orphans]
                               [--update] [--media media [media ...]]
                               [--excludemedia media [media ...]] [--problems]
                               [--suggests] [--dupes] [--cleandupes]
                               [--noscripts] [--leaves] [--all]
                               [--leaf-regex LEAF_REGEX] [--exclude-devel]
                               [--exclude-bin] [--oldkernels]
                               [--count KERNELCOUNT] [--keepdevel]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --qf QF, --queryformat QF
                        Query format to use for output.
  --auto                Use non-interactive mode
  --version             show program's version number and exit

  --orphans             List installed packages which are not available from
                        currently configured repositories
  --update              Use only update media. This means that urpmq will
                        search and resolve dependencies only in media marked
                        as containing updates (e.g. which have been created
                        with "urpmi.addmedia --update").
  --media media [media ...]
                        Select specific media to be used, instead of
                        defaulting to all available media (or all update media
                        if --update is used). No rpm will be found in other
                        media.
  --excludemedia media [media ...]
                        Do not use the specified media.

                        regex
  --leaf-regex LEAF_REGEX
                        A package name that matches this regular expression
                        (case insensitively) is a leaf
  --exclude-devel       do not list development packages as leaf nodes
  --exclude-bin         do not list packages with files in a bin dirs as leaf
                        nodes
