NAME

osinfo-detect - Detect the operating system on installable media or trees

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

osinfo-detect [OPTIONS...] PATH|URI

DESCRIPTION

Examine the PATH or URI to determine what (if any) operating system it is for, and whether it is installable or is a Live image. By default PATH or 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.

OPTIONS

--format=plain|env Switch between human readable output (plain, the default) or machine readable output (env).
--type=media|tree Switch between looking for CD/DVD ISO media (media, the default) or install trees (tree)

EXIT STATUS

The exit status will be 0 if an operating system was detected, or 1 if none was found.
