COMBINEDELTARPM(8)	    System Manager's Manual	    COMBINEDELTARPM(8)

NAME
       combindeltarpm -	combine	multiple deltarpms to a	single one

SYNOPSIS
       combinedeltarpm	[-v]  [-V  version] [-z	compression] [-S signaturerpm]
       olddeltarpms...	newdeltarpm

DESCRIPTION
       combinedeltarpm creates a new deltarpm from multiple old	ones.	Apply-
       ing  the	 rsulting deltarpm has the same	effect as applying each	of the
       old ones	in the specified  order.  Use  the  -v	option	to  make  com-
       binedeltarpm more verbose about its work.

       combinedeltarpm	normally produces a V3 format deltarpm,	use the	-V op-
       tion to specify a different version if desired. The -z  option  can  be
       used  to	 specify a different compression method, the default is	to use
       the same	compression method as used in the last of the old deltarpms.

       If you want to use a different header signature you can also specify  a
       rpm  with the -S	option which will be used as signature reference. This
       feature can be used to if a deltarpm was	made against an	 unsigned  rpm
       which later got signed.

MEMORY CONSIDERATIONS
       The  implementation of combinedeltarpm currently	unpacks	the add-blocks
       of the deltarpms	in memory, thus	it needs about twice the  uncompressed
       payload size of the target rpm.
