NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_md5sums - generate DEBIAN/md5sums file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_md5sums [debhelper options] [-x] [-Xitem] [--include-conffiles]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_md5sums is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating a
       DEBIAN/md5sums file, which lists the md5sums of each file in the package.

       All files in DEBIAN/ are omitted from the md5sums file, as are all
       conffiles (unless you use the --include-conffiles switch).

       The md5sums file is installed with proper permissions and ownerships.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       -x, --include-conffiles
	   Include conffiles in the md5sums list. Note that this information
	   is redundant since it is included elsewhere in debian packages.

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
	   Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
	   being listed in the md5sums file.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]


       This program is a part of debhelper.
