The osinfo-db-path tool will report the paths associated with the standard osinfo database locations:
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 reported by default, otherwise the user location will be reported.
Override the default behaviour to force reporting of the user database location.
Override the default behaviour to force reporting of the local database location.
Override the default behaviour to force reporting of the system database location.
Override the default behaviour to force reporting of the custom directory 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.
The exit status will be 0 if the requested path was reported, or 1 if the arguments were invalid.
