osinfo-db-import(1)		Osinfo DB Tools		   osinfo-db-import(1)

NAME
       osinfo-db-import	- Import an osinfo database archive

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       When passing a non local	ARCHIVE-FILE, only http:// and https://
       protocols are supported.

       With no ARCHIVE-FILE, or	when ARCHIVE-FILE is -,	read standard input.

OPTIONS
       --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.

       --latest
	       Downloads the latest osinfo-db release from libosinfo's
	       official	releases website and installs it in the	desired
	       location.  The latest osinfo-db release is only downloaded and
	       installed when it's newer than the one installed	in the desired
	       location.

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

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