Local repo sqlite files?
 
Hi all,

I'm updating a customised CentOS 5.2 repo to 5.4. After running createrepo,
I find all the usual .xml.gz files updated, but the sqlite.bz2 files have not
been touched. What is the significance of these files? If they need to be
updated, how is it done?

-rw-r--r-- 1 user group 1140 May 12 11:04 repomd.xml

The customisation essentially consists of merging base and updates into
a single repository.

D'oh. I had checked the man page but completely overlooked the option
because the files aren't listed in the FILES section. Thanks!

do this : 'man createrepo', look at -d option.

if these files are found in a repo, yum will prefer these. In many
cases, resulting in better yum performance.
