lsbpkgchk(1) check LSB conformance of a package


lsbpkgchk [-hvnAt] [-L LANANANAME] [-T PRODUCT] [-M MODULE]... ] [-j JOURNAL] [-d DEPENDENCY] [long-options] pkgname


Measure a package's conformance to the Linux Standard Base (LSB) specification. The format of the package and the contents of the payload are checked. Warnings are produced for anything that is used, but not contained in the LSB specification.

-h, --help
Print a help message and exit.
-v, --version
Output the program version and LSB version to standard output. The version and LSB version are always logged to the journal file irrespective of this option.
-n, --nojournal
Do not create a journal file.
Specify the LANANA registered package or provider name to be used when evaluating pathnames for FHS conformance.
Check the LSB conformance of the executable files in the archive payload of the package. All shared libraries present in the package are assumed to be a part of the application, hence lsbpkgchk does not complain about symbols in executable files which are provided in those shared libraries.
VERSION, --lsb-version=VERSION
Specify the lsb version the application should be checked against.
-T [core,c++|core,c++,desktop], --lsb-product [core,c++|core,c++,desktop]
Specify the lsb spec/product to load modules for- 3.0, and 3.1, respectively.
-M modulename
Also check the symbols found in module modulename. The default module name is LSB-Core. Other choices are LSB-Graphics and LSB-C++ (module names are not case-sensitive).
-j JOURNAL, --journal=JOURNAL
Write the journal file to JOURNAL instead of to the default filename in the current directory.
Add DEPENDENCY provided by another customer provided package to the list of expected dependencies. Without this option a package that has a dependency on another customer provided package will report that it has an unexpected dependency.

A journal file is created named journal.pkgchk.pkgname where pkgname is the package specified on the command line. It contains a record of the test results in a format that can be submitted for LSB Certification. You must have write access to the current working directory in order to run lsbpkgchk successfully, or use the -j option to specify an alternate location for the journal. The journal file can be omitted by the use of the -n option. Journal files may be examined with the tjreport tool, available from the LSB project as part of the lsb-tet3-lite package.

Should be able to specify where to write the journal file.
