NAME
       repoquery - query information from Yum repositories

SYNOPSIS
       repoquery [options] <item ...>
       repoquery -a [options]

DESCRIPTION
       repoquery  is  a  program  for querying information from YUM repositories similarly to rpm
       queries.

GENERAL OPTIONS
       --querytags
	      List valid queryformat tags and exit..

       -v, --version
	      Report program version and exit.

       --repoid=<repo>
	      Specify which repository to query. Using this option disables all repositories  not
	      explicitly  enabled  with  --repoid option (can be used multiple times). By default
	      repoquery uses whatever repositories are enabled in YUM configuration.

       --enablerepo=<repo>
	      In addition to the default set, query the given additional repository, even  if  it
	      is disabled in YUM configuration.  Can be used multiple times.

       --disablerepo=<repo>
	      Do not query the given repository, even if it is enabled in YUM configuration.  Can
	      be used multiple times.

       --repofrompath=<repoid>,<path/url>
	      Specify a path or url to a repository (same path as in a baseurl)  to  add  to  the
	      repositories for this query. This option can be used multiple times. If you want to
	      view only the pkgs from this repository combine this with --repoid. The repoid  for
	      the repository is specified by <repoid>.

       --plugins
	      Enable YUM plugin support.

       -q, --query
	      For rpmquery compatibility, doesn't do anything.

       -h, --help
	      Help; display a help message and then quit.

       --quiet
	      Run quietly: no warnings printed to stderr.

       --verbose
	      Produce verbose output.

       -C, --cache
	      Tells  repoquery to run entirely from YUM cache - does not download any metadata or
	      update the cache. Queries in this mode can fail or give  partial/incorrect  results
	      if the cache isn't fully populated beforehand with eg "yum makecache".

       --tempcache
	      Create  and  use	a  private  cache  instead of the main YUM cache. This is used by
	      default when run as non-root user.

       -c <config file>, --config=<config file>
	      Use alternative config file (default is /etc/yum.conf).

       --releasever=version
	      Pretend the current release version is the given string. This is very  useful  when
	      combined with --installroot. You can also use --releasever=/ to take the releasever
	      information from outside the installroot.  Note  that  with  the	default  upstream
	      cachedir, of /var/cache/yum, using this option will corrupt your cache (and you can
	      use $releasever in your cachedir configuration to stop this).

       --installroot=root
	      Specifies an alternative installroot,  relative  to  which  all  packages  will  be
	      installed.  Think of this like doing "chroot <root> yum" except using --installroot
	      allows yum to work before the chroot is created.	Note: You may also  want  to  use
	      the  option  --releasever=/  when creating the installroot as otherwise the $relea-
	      sever value is taken from the rpmdb within  the  installroot  (and  thus.  will  be
	      empty, before creation).

       --setopt=option=value
	      Set any config option in yum config or repo files. For options in the global config
	      just use: --setopt=option=value for repo options use: --setopt=repoid.option=value


PACKAGE QUERY OPTIONS
       -i, --info
	      Show general information about package similarly to "rpm -qi"

       -l, --list
	      List files in package.

       -R, --requires
	      List package dependencies.

       --resolve
	      When used with --requires, resolve capabilities to originating packages.

       --provides
	      List capabilities package provides.

       --obsoletes
	      List capabilities obsoleted by package.

       --conflicts
	      List capabilities conflicting with package.

       --changelog
	      List package changelog.

       --location
	      Show a location where the package could be  downloaded  from.   For  example:  wget
	      `repoquery --location yum`

       -s, --source
	      Show package source RPM name.

       --srpm Operate on corresponding source RPM.

       --groupmember PACKAGE
	      List the repodata groups (yumgroups.xml) belongs to (if any).

       --nvr  Use name-version-release output format (rpm query default)

       --nevra
	      Use name-epoch:version-release.architecture output format (default)

       --envra
	      Use  epoch:name-version-release.architecture  output  format  (easier to parse than
	      nevra)

       --qf=FORMAT, --queryformat=FORMAT
	      Specify custom output format for queries. You can add ":date",  ":day"  and  ":iso-
	      date"  to  all the tags that are a time, and you can add ":k", ":m", ":g", ":t" and
	      ":h" to sizes. You can also specify field width as in sprintf (Eg. %-20{name})

       --output [text|ascii-tree|dot-tree]
	      Output format which can be used  with  --requires/--whatrequires/--obsoletes/--con-
	      flicts.  Default output is 'text'.

       --level [all|any int]
	      In  combination  with --output ascii-tree|dot-tree this option specifies the number
	      of level to print on the tree. Default level is 'all'.

PACKAGE SELECTION OPTIONS
       -a, --all
	      Query all available packages (for rpmquery compatibility / shorthand for	repoquery
	      '*')

       --show-duplicates
	      Query all versions of packages.

       -f, --file FILE
	      Query package owning FILE.

       --whatobsoletes CAPABILITY
	      Query all packages that obsolete CAPABILITY.

       --whatconflicts CAPABILITY
	      Query all packages that conflict with CAPABILITY.

       --whatprovides CAPABILITY
	      Query all packages that provide CAPABILITY.

       --whatrequires CAPABILITY
	      Query all packages that require CAPABILITY.

       --alldeps
	      When  used  with	--whatrequires, look for non-explicit dependencies in addition to
	      explicit ones (e.g. files and Provides in addition to package names).  This is  the
	      default.

       --exactdeps
	      When used with --whatrequires, search for dependencies only exactly as given.  This
	      is effectively the opposite of --alldeps.

       --recursive
	      When used with --whatrequires, and  --requires  --resolve,  query  packages  recur-
	      sively.

       --archlist=ARCH1[,ARCH2...]
	      Limit  the  query to packages of given architecture(s). Valid values are all archi-
	      tectures known to rpm/yum such as 'i386' and 'src' for source RPMS. Note that repo-
	      query  will now change yum's "arch" to the first value in the archlist. So "--arch-
	      list=i386,i686" will change yum's canonical arch to i386,  but  allow  packages  of
	      i386 and i686.

       --pkgnarrow=WHAT
	      Limit  what  packages  are  considered  for  the	query. Valid values for WHAT are:
	      installed, available, recent, updates, extras, all and repository (default).

       --installed
	      Restrict query ONLY to installed pkgs - disables all repos and only acts on rpmdb.

GROUP QUERY OPTIONS
       -i, --info
	      Show general information about group.

       -l, --list
	      List packages belonging to (required by) group.

       --grouppkgs=WHAT
	      Specify what type of packages are queried from groups. Valid values  for	WHAT  are
	      all, mandatory, default, optional.

       --requires
	      List groups required by group.

GROUP SELECTION OPTIONS
       -a     Query all available groups.

       -g, --group
	      Query groups instead of packages.

EXAMPLES
       List all packages whose name contains 'perl':
	      repoquery '*perl*'

       List all packages depending on openssl:
	      repoquery --whatrequires openssl

       List all package names and the repository they come from, nicely formatted:
	      repoquery -a --qf "%-20{repoid} %{name}"

       List name and summary of all available updates (if any), nicely formatted:
	      repoquery -a --pkgnarrow=updates --qf "%{name}:\n%{summary}\n"

       List optional packages in base group:
	      repoquery -g --grouppkgs=optional -l base

       List build requirements from 'anaconda' source rpm:
	      repoquery --requires anaconda.src

       List packages which BuildRequire gail-devel
	      repoquery --archlist=src --whatrequires gail-devel
		NB:  This  command  will only work if you have repositories enabled which include
	      srpms.

MISC
       Specifying package names
	      A package can be referred to in all queries with any of the following:

	      name
	      name.arch
	      name-ver
	      name-ver-rel
	      name-ver-rel.arch
	      name-epoch:ver-rel.arch
	      epoch:name-ver-rel.arch

	      For example: repoquery -l kernel-2.4.1-10.i686
	      Additionally wildcards (shell-style globs) can be used.

FILES
       As repoquery uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the information, it relies on YUM  con-
       figuration  for	its default values like which repositories to use. Consult YUM documenta-
       tion for details:

       /etc/yum.conf
       /etc/yum/repos.d/
       /var/cache/yum/
