osinfo-db-import - Import an osinfo database archive
osinfo-db-import [OPTIONS...] ARCHIVE-FILE
The osinfo-db-import tool will take an osinfo database archive and extract its contents into one of the standard database locations on the current host: system This is the primary system-wide database location, intended for use by operating system vendors distributing database files in the native package format. local This is the secondary system-wide database location, intended for use by system administrators wishing to provide an updated database for all users. user This is the user private database location, intended for use by unprivileged local users wishing to provide applications they use with an updated database. If run by a privileged account (ie root), the local database location will be used by default, otherwise the user location will be used.
--user Override the default behaviour to force installation into the user database location. --local Override the default behaviour to force installation into the local database location. --system Override the default behaviour to force installation into the system database location. --dir=PATH Override the default behaviour to force installation into the custom directory PATH. --root=PATH Prefix the installation location with the root directory given by "PATH". This is useful when wishing to install into a chroot environment or equivalent. -v, --verbose Display verbose progress information when installing files
The exit status will be 0 if all files were installed successfully, or 1 if at least one file could not be installed.
