Re: RPM Patching



Sorry, I was looking at an older version of your software. My mistake. Well, it seems the last thing to do is setting up yum to be able to use deltarpms. Or has that already been done?

There's really not much of anything I can add except the fact that I'm dealing with the RPMs on a file by file basis, which means you don't necessarily have to have the original RPM when applying the patch. You just have to have installed it on your system.

Yes, my deltarpm package also supports this. (It was actually
one of the design goals.)

I'm also using bsdiff, but changed the algorithm to use a hash instead
of a suffix tree, because the suffix tree takes way too much time for
large archives.

Cheers,
 Michael.
