       debsums_init - Initialize md5sums files for packages lacking them




       debsums_init  will  look  for  packages that did not install their md5sums files. Then, it
       will generate those  md5sums  files  from  the  binary  packages  downloaded  via  APT  if

       This  initialization  process  is  needed  since there are many packages which do not ship
       md5sums file in their binary packages.  If you enable  auto-gen  option  while  installing
       debsum  package, you need to run this debsums_init command only once after you install the
       debsums package.

       debsums_init needs to be invoked as superuser.

       You may wish to clear local package cache prior to running debsums_init  command  to  make
       sure you are creating from the untainted packages by executing:

            apt-get clean
