osinfo-db-import [Options...] [ARCHIVE-FILE]
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:
This is the primary system-wide database location, intended for use by operating system vendors distributing database files in the native package format.
This is the secondary system-wide database location, intended for use by system administrators wishing to provide an updated database for all users.
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.
Override the default behaviour to force installation into the user database location.
Override the default behaviour to force installation into the local database location.
Override the default behaviour to force installation into the system database location.
