NAME

       ostree-create-usb - Put the given refs on an external drive for P2P distribution.

SYNOPSIS

       ostree create-usb [OPTIONS...] {MOUNT-PATH} {COLLECTION-ID REF} [COLLECTION-ID REF...]

DESCRIPTION

       This command creates a repository in MOUNT-PATH and pulls the given REF(s) into it so they
       can be found and pulled from (perhaps by another computer that's offline). See ostree-
       find-remotes(1) for more information on P2P distribution.

       In order for ostree to pull refs from a mounted filesystem (such as a USB drive) the repo
       must be in a standard location. Specifically, subdirectories of .ostree/repos.d are
       checked, then .ostree/repo, ostree/repo, and var/lib/flatpak/repo are checked. By default
       ostree create-usb uses .ostree/repo, but if you specify another location using
       --destination-repo a symbolic link will be created for you in .ostree/repos.d.

       This command will regenerate the summary file in the destination repo so that it stays
       accurate, so you shouldn't try to use summary signatures in the destination repo. This
       shouldn't be a concern because clients that support pulling from USB mounts use signed
       per-repo and per-commit metadata instead of summary signatures.

OPTIONS

       --disable-fsync
           Do not invoke fsync().

       --destination-repo=DEST
           Create the repository in DEST under MOUNT-PATH, rather than the default location.

       --commit=COMMIT
           Pull COMMIT instead of whatever REF points to. This can only be used if a single ref
           is specified.
