DH_MD5SUMS(1) Debhelper DH_MD5SUMS(1)

NAME

dh_md5sums - generate DEBIAN/md5sums file

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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. These files are used by dpkg --verify or the debsums(1) program.

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

Include conffiles in the md5sums list. Note that this information is redundant since it is included elsewhere in Debian packages.
Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being listed in the md5sums file.

SEE ALSO

This program is a part of debhelper.
