osinfo-detect — Detect the operating system on installable media or trees
osinfo-detect [Options...] PATH|URI
"URI" to determine what (if any) operating system it is for, and whether it is installable or is a Live image. By default
"URI" will be interpreted as pointing to ISO media. To request examination of an install tree instead, the option
"--type=tree" should be given.
The output information is formatted for humans; to obtain machine readable output, the option
"--format=env" should be given to produce shell-like key/value pairs.
Switch between human readable output (plain, the default) or machine readable output (env).
Switch between looking for CD/DVD ISO media (media, the default) or install trees (tree)
The exit status will be 0 if an operating system was detected, or 1 if none was found.
