    Command:

    apt-cdrom

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           apt-cdrom [-hvrmfan] [-d=cdrom mount point] [-o=config string]
                     [-c=file] [[add] | [ident]]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           apt-cdrom is used to add a new CDROM to APTs list of available sources.
           apt-cdrom takes care of determining the structure of the disc as well
           as correcting for several possible mis-burns and verifying the index
           files.
    
           It is necessary to use apt-cdrom to add CDs to the APT system, it
           cannot be done by hand. Furthermore each disk in a multi-cd set must be
           inserted and scanned separately to account for possible mis-burns.
    
           Unless the -h, or --help option is given one of the commands below must
           be present.
    
           add
               add is used to add a new disc to the source list. It will unmount
               the CDROM device, prompt for a disk to be inserted and then proceed
               to scan it and copy the index files. If the disc does not have a
               proper disk directory you will be prompted for a descriptive title.
    
               APT uses a CDROM ID to track which disc is currently in the drive
               and maintains a database of these IDs in /var/lib/apt/cdroms.list
    
           ident
               A debugging tool to report the identity of the current disc as well
               as the stored file name
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           All command line options may be set using the configuration file, the
           descriptions indicate the configuration option to set. For boolean
           options you can override the config file by using something like
           -f-,--no-f, -f=no or several other variations.
    
           -d, --cdrom
               Mount point; specify the location to mount the cdrom. This mount
               point must be listed in /etc/fstab and properly configured.
               Configuration Item: Acquire::cdrom::mount.
    
           -r, --rename
               Rename a disc; change the label of a disk or override the disks
               given label. This option will cause apt-cdrom to prompt for a new
               label. Configuration Item: APT::CDROM::Rename.
    
           -m, --no-mount
               No mounting; prevent apt-cdrom from mounting and unmounting the
               mount point. Configuration Item: APT::CDROM::NoMount.
    
           -f, --fast
               Fast Copy; Assume the package files are valid and do not check
    
           -h, --help
               Show a short usage summary.
    
           -v, --version
               Show the program version.
    
           -c, --config-file
               Configuration File; Specify a configuration file to use. The
               program will read the default configuration file and then this
               configuration file. If configuration settings need to be set before
               the default configuration files are parsed specify a file with the
               APT_CONFIG environment variable. See apt.conf(5) for syntax
               information.
    
           -o, --option
               Set a Configuration Option; This will set an arbitrary
               configuration option. The syntax is -o Foo::Bar=bar.  -o and
               --option can be used multiple times to set different options.
