NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

aptitude-create-state-bundle […]

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 if it is
available, and gzip 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 if it is
available, and gzip 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 file compressed with bzip2 or
gzip, with each of the input directory trees rooted at “.”.
