Presto: A project to add delta rpm support into yum for Fedora users
-Most of the code base has been written by Marcel Hild <> as
-up2date/satellite-server delta rpm support. Code adaptation for yum done by
-Ahmed Kamal <>. Support for storing repository
-information added by Jonathan Dieter <>
-1- Make sure deltarpm is installed on your system (yum -y install deltarpm)
-2- Place the files in the following locations:
- share-presto => /usr/share/presto/*
- => /usr/lib/yum-plugins/
- presto.conf => /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/presto.conf)
-3- Use makerepo/ to create a Presto repository on top of a
- normal yum repository.
- NOTE: will NOT change any files created by createrepo
-4- In your repository conf file, set deltaurl to point to your Presto
- repository (in most cases, it will be the same as baseurl).
-5- Now install an old rpm from your repo using rpm, then try updating it using
- yum. The plugin should kick in, try to download the drpm, reconstruct the
- full rpm, and yum should install that
+1- Install yum-presto on your system (yum -y install yum-presto)
+2- Now install an old rpm from updates or extras using rpm, then try updating
+ it using yum. The plugin should kick in, try to download the drpm,
+ reconstruct the full rpm, and yum should install that.
-- The code is in an early stage. Minimal testing has been done.
+Presto will read the deltaurl from two possible locations:
+1. The repository's .repo file ("deltaurl =")
+2. Appended to /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/presto.conf in the form:
+ [repository]
+ deltaurl =
+Presto.conf has the following options in [main]:
+keepdeltas=1 Always keep deltas in cache no matter what keepcache
+ is set to.
+neverkeepdeltas=1 Always remove deltas after creating full rpms.
+exitondownloadfailure=0|1 If there is a problem downloading the deltarpm, exit
+ rather than trying to download the full rpm.
+Note: If you specify neither keepdeltas nor neverkeepdeltas, presto will follow
+ the keepcache option in yum.conf.
