osinfo-db-path: Report database locations
osinfo-db-path - Report database locations
DESCRIPTIONThe osinfo-db-path tool will report the paths associated with the standard osinfo database locations:
- This is the primary system-wide database location, intended for use by operating system vendors distributing database files in the native package format.
- This is the secondary system-wide database location, intended for use by system administrators wishing to provide an updated database for all users.
- This is the user private database location, intended for use by unprivileged local users wishing to provide applications they use with an updated database.
- Override the default behaviour to force reporting of the user database location.
- Override the default behaviour to force reporting of the local database location.
- Override the default behaviour to force reporting of the system database location.
- Override the default behaviour to force reporting of the custom directory PATH.
- Prefix the database location with the root directory given by "PATH". This is useful when wishing to report paths relative to a chroot environment or equivalent.
EXIT STATUSThe exit status will be 0 if the requested path was reported, or 1 if the arguments were invalid.
