OSINFO-DB-EXPORT.C(1)	    Virtualization Support	 OSINFO-DB-EXPORT.C(1)

NAME
       osinfo-db-export	- Export to a osinfo database archive

SYNOPSIS
       osinfo-db-export	[OPTIONS...] [ARCHIVE-FILE]

DESCRIPTION
       The osinfo-db-export tool will create an	osinfo database	archive	file
       containing the content from one of the standard local database
       locations:

       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.

       If no ARCHIVE-FILE path is given, an automatically generated filename
       will be used, taking the	format osinfo-db-$VERSION.tar.xz.

OPTIONS
       --user  Override	the default behaviour to force archiving files from
	       the user	database location.

       --local Override	the default behaviour to force archiving files from
	       the local database location.

       --system
	       Override	the default behaviour to force archiving files from
	       the system database location.

       --dir=PATH
	       Override	the default behaviour to force archiving files from
	       the custom directory PATH.

       --root=PATH
	       Prefix the database location with the root directory given by
	       "PATH". This is useful when wishing to archive files that are
	       in a chroot environment or equivalent.

       --version=VERSION
	       Set the version string for the files in the archive to VERSION.
	       If this argument	is not given, the version will be set to the
	       current date in the format YYYYMMDD.

       --license=LICENSE-FILE
	       Add "LICENSE-FILE" to the generated archive as an entry named
	       "LICENSE".

       -v, --verbose
	       Display verbose progress	information when archiving files

EXIT STATUS
       The exit	status will be 0 if all	files were packed successfully,	or 1
       if at least one file could not be packed	into the archive.
