NAME

aptitude-create-state-bundle - bundle the current aptitude state

SYNOPSIS

:aptitude-create-state-bundle [<options>...] <output-file>

DESCRIPTION

aptitude-create-state-bundle

produces a compressed archive storing the files that are required to replicate the current package archive state. The following files and directories are included in the bundle
:
$HOME/.aptitude
• /var/lib/aptitude
• /var/lib/apt
• /var/cache/apt/*.bin
• /etc/apt
• /var/lib/dpkg/status

The output of this program can be used as an argument to aptitude-run-state-bundle?(1).

OPTIONS

--force-bzip2

Override the autodetection of which compression algorithm to use. By default, aptitude-create-state-bundle uses bzip2?(1) if it is available, and gzip?(1) otherwise. Passing this option forces the use of bzip2 even if it doesn't appear to be available.

--force-gzip

Override the autodetection of which compression algorithm to use. By default, aptitude-create-state-bundle uses bzip2?(1) if it is available, and gzip?(1) otherwise. Passing this option forces the use of gzip even if bzip2 is available.

--help

Print a brief usage message, then exit.

--print-inputs

Instead of creating a bundle, display a list of the files and directories that the program would include if it generated a bundle.

FILE FORMAT

The bundle file is simply a tar?(1) file compressed with bzip2?(1) or gzip?(1), with each of the input directory trees rooted at ".".
