RE: Shell Script - Compare packages. rpm



I would do something like this:

Use the rpm queryformat functionality of rpm to print out the version
of the package:

 rpm -q --queryformat '%{VERSION}' glibc-devel-2.3.4-2.39

This will print out the version, something like:

2.3.4-2.39

Which can then be compared against a newer version (for this part you
Would need to get update.out filename list into a similar format).

Subject: Shell Script - Compare packages. rpm

Hi,

         I need a script which makes the package compação rpm's through two text files ...

         Since a file is the output of the command *rpm-qa > pkg.out *

         And the second file is a list of several packages rpm's, multiple versions and architectures.

         My idea is to compare a package *x* file pkg.out with several packages *y* of the file update.out and know whether a package and has a larger version of the package *x* installed and with that I return I have a package to be updated.

        Does anyone can help me do this comparison?

        OBS.: The servers do not have access to internet.

        Here's an example of the packages described in the files:

[root rpm tiago]# tail -n12 pkg.out
