NAME

       distrib-info  -  A distribution independant utility to retrieve package
       information.

SYNTAX

       distrib-info vserver-name command [options]

DESCRIPTION

       distrib-info  -  This  utility  provides  a  solution  to   hide   some
       differences between Linux distributions. The various utilities (vunify,
       vbuild, ...)  need package information to perform their task. They call
       distrib-info to retrieve this information. distrib-info is the only one
       understanding the various distribution out there.

       This utility is only used as a back-end for other utilities such as
              vunify and vbuild.

OPTIONS

       dumpfiles reports all files owned by a package.

       pkgversion reports all packages and version.

       unifiles reports the files of a package which may be shared by
              several  virtual   servers.   Generally,   this   excludes   all
              configuration files.

EXAMPLES

       The  following  command  will report all packages in the vserver ref80.
       The package will be presented with the version/release.

            distrib-info ref80 pkgversion

       To get the list of unify-able (sharable) file in  package  sendmail  of
       the vserver ref80, we do

            distrib-info ref80 unifiles sendmail

FILES

            /usr/lib/vservers/distrib-info
