virt-index-validate — Validate virt-builder index file

Synopsis

virt-index-validate index

Description

virt-builder(1) uses an index file to store metadata about templates that it knows how to use. This index file has a specific format which virt-index-validate knows how to validate.

Note that virt-index-validate can validate either the signed or unsigned index file (ie. either index or index.asc). It can only validate a local file, not a URL.

Options

--compat-1.24.0

Check for compatibility with virt-builder 1.24.0. (Using this option implies --compat-1.24.1, so you don't need to use both.)

In particular:

·
This version of virt-builder could not handle "[...]" (square brackets) in field names (eg. "checksum[sha512]=...").
·
It required detached signatures ("sig=...").
--compat-1.24.1

Check for compatibility with virt-builder ≥ 1.24.1.

In particular:

·
This version of virt-builder could not handle "." (period) in field names or "," (comma) in subfield names.
·
It could not handle comments appearing in the file.
--help
Display help.
-V
--version
Display version number and exit.

Exit Status

This program returns 0 if the index file validates, or non-zero if there was an error.
