NAME aptitude-create-state-bundle - bundle the current aptitude state
SYNOPSIS aptitude-create-state-bundle [<options>...] <output-file>
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(1) if it is available, and gzip(1) 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(1) if it is available, and gzip(1) 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(1) file compressed with bzip2(1) or gzip(1), with each of the input directory trees rooted at “.”.
