NAME
       osinfo-db-path -	Report database	locations

SYNOPSIS
       osinfo-db-path [OPTIONS...]

DESCRIPTION
       The osinfo-db-path tool will report the paths associated	with the
       standard	osinfo 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 reported	by default, otherwise the user location	will be
       reported.

OPTIONS
       --user  Override	the default behaviour to force reporting of the	user
	       database	location.

       --local Override	the default behaviour to force reporting of the	local
	       database	location.

       --system
	       Override	the default behaviour to force reporting of the	system
	       database	location.

       --dir=PATH
	       Override	the default behaviour to force reporting of the	custom
	       directory PATH.

       --root=PATH
	       Prefix the database location with the root directory given by
	       "PATH". This is useful when wishing to report paths relative to
	       a chroot	environment or equivalent.

EXIT STATUS
       The exit	status will be 0 if the	requested path was reported, or	1 if
       the arguments were invalid.
