How to view the Changelog
Posted by admin on 11 September 2009 11:08 PM
Because CentOS and the upstream vendor have backported security patches, the version numbers can often be misleading when you look for CVE fixes. Checking the changelog of a package is a good way to see if the fix has been implemented. Once again, rpm comes to the rescue.

# rpm -q --changelog | less

Using less isn't necessary, but for some packages like the kernel, the changelog can be quite long. Using less helps to make things more readable.
