CentOS: detailed history of patch updates

nodakai asked:

e.g. http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/Packages/


chrony-3.2-2.el7.x86_64.rpm

Any ways to know what made the -2 part in 3.2-2? I.e. deltas between 3.2 and 3.2-2. That’s no-brainer for Debian and Ubuntu

I’m using Amazon Linux 2, but wondering if there are any usable RPMs online containing a backport of the particular bugfix which I need.

My answer:


Use the --changelog option to rpm to view the package changelog.

For example:

rpm -q --changelog chrony | less
