file, which lists the md5sums of each file in the
package. These files are used by dpkg --verify
or the debsums
All files in DEBIAN/
are omitted from the md5sums
file, as are all
conffiles (unless you use the --include-conffiles
The md5sums file is installed with proper permissions and ownerships.
- -x, --include-conffiles
- Include conffiles in the md5sums list. Note that this
information is redundant since it is included elsewhere in Debian
- -Xitem, --exclude=item
- Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their
filename from being listed in the md5sums file.
This program is a part of debhelper.
