dh_md5sums - generate DEBIAN/md5sums file
SYNOPSISdh_md5sums [debhelper options] [-x] [-Xitem] [--include-conffiles]
DESCRIPTIONdh_md5sums is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating a DEBIAN/md5sums file, which lists the md5sums of each file in the package. These files are used by dpkg --verify or the debsums(1) program.
All files in DEBIAN/ are omitted from the md5sums file, as are all conffiles (unless you use the --include-conffiles switch).
- -x, --include-conffiles
- Include conffiles in the md5sums list. Note that this information is redundant since it is included elsewhere in Debian packages.
- -Xitem, --exclude=item
- Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being listed in the md5sums file.
