NAME

aptitude-run-state-bundle – unpack an aptitude state bundle and invoke
aptitude on it

SYNOPSIS

aptitude-run-state-bundle […]
[ […]]

DESCRIPTION

aptitude-run-state-bundle unpacks the given aptitude state bundle
created by aptitude-create-state-bundle to a temporary directory,
invokes on it with the supplied , and removes the
temporary directory afterwards. If is not supplied, it
defaults to aptitude(8).

OPTIONS

The following options may occur on the command-line before the input
file. Options following the input file are presumed to be arguments to
aptitude.

–append-args
Place the options that give the location of the state bundle at the
end of the command line when invoking , rather than at the
beginning (the default is to place options at the beginning).

–help
Display a brief usage summary.

–prepend-args
Place the options that give the location of the state bundle at the
beginning of the command line when invoking , overriding
any previous –append-args (the default is to place options at the
beginning).

–no-clean
Do not remove the unpacked state directory after running aptitude.
You might want to use this if, for instance, you are debugging a
problem that appears when aptitude’s state file is modified. When
aptitude finishes running, the name of the state directory will be
printed so that you can access it in the future.

This option is enabled automatically by –statedir.

–really-clean
Delete the state directory after running aptitude, even if
–no-clean or –statedir was supplied.

–statedir
Instead of treating the input file as a state bundle, treat it as
an unpacked state bundle. For instance, you can use this to access
the state directory that was created by a prior run with
–no-clean.

–unpack
Unpack the input file to a temporary directory, but don’t actually
run aptitude.
