       xt_geoip_build — convert GeoIP.csv to packed format for xt_geoip


       /usr/libexec/xt_geoip/xt_geoip_build [-D target_dir] [-S source_dir]


       xt_geoip_build  is used to build packed raw representations of the range database that the
       xt_geoip module relies on. Since kernel memory is precious, much of the  preprocessing  is
       done  in  userspace  by this very building tool. One file is produced for each country, so
       that no more addresses than needed are required to be loaded into memory.  The  ranges  in
       the  packed  database  files are also ordered, as xt_geoip relies on this property for its
       bisection approach to work.

       Since the script is usually installed to  the  libexec  directory  of  the  xtables-addons
       package  and  this  is  outside  $PATH (on purpose), invoking the script requires it to be
       called with a path.

       -D target_dir
              Specifies the target directory into which the files are to be put. Defaults to ".".

       -S source_dir
              Specifies the source directory from which to read the three files by  the  name  of
              GeoLite2-Country-Blocks-IPv4.csv,        GeoLite2-Country-Blocks-IPv6.csv       and
              GeoLite2-Country-Locations-en.csv. Defaults to ".".


       Shell commands to build the databases and put them to where they are expected:

       xt_geoip_build -D /usr/share/xt_geoip
