zypper: new command needed

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2

Description

Today my X-System crashed. So i become an Idea. It would be graeat, if we can implement an Function in zypper, who search the whole RPM-Database, and detects Errors with the installed Packages. And if he found Errors, that he connects to the Net and reinstalls the broken Packages.

I don't quite follow you. Is the requested feature different from the "zypper verify" command ?

Yip; this sounds quite like a request for a tool that I have recently implemented:

http://wwwu.edu.uni-klu.ac.at/estellnb/checkroot/

That one comes out of a security context and can even prevent a cracker from hiding his traces to file changes. However the tool is still under developement (especially the re-dld feature). Perhaps you wanna give it a try (or wait vor v1.0).

  A totally different approach to your request would be Feature #306508. Such md5sum lists could directly determine illegally aletered files wherupon applying an rpm -qf on these files would give you a list of packages to be reinstalled.

Does Feature #306505 address your need, Sascha? And we can close this one or is more investigation needed?

Leaving out the intrustion detection feature mentioned in 306508 (MD5 alone should be considered broken for intrustion detection purposes), software packages like tripwire existed for that since mid-90's.

@spyhawk -  this is asking for rpm verify, plus automagic refresh of rpm; not dependency checking

Wouldn't this belong in some repair module, with verification by boot DVD/CD against external repo?
