       apt-cdrom - APT CDROM managment utility

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

       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

       It  is necessary to use apt-cdrom to add CDs to the APT system, it can‐
       not 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 procceed 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

       ident  A debugging tool to report the identity of the current  disc  as
	      well as the stored file name

       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.


	      Mount point; specify the location to mount the cdrom. This mount
	      point must be listed in /etc/fstab and propely configured.  Con‐
	      figuration Item: Acquire::cdrom::mount.


	      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.


	      No mounting; prevent apt-cdrom from mounting and unmounting  the
	      mount point.  Configuration Item: APT::CDROM::NoMount.


       --fast Fast  Copy;  Assume the package files are valid and do not check
	      every package. This option should be used only if apt-cdrom  has
	      been  run	 on  this  disc	 before and did not detect any errors.
	      Configuration Item: APT::CDROM::Fast.


	      Thorough Package Scan; This option may be needed with  some  old
	      Debian  1.1/1.2 discs that have Package files in strange places.
	      It takes much longer to scan the CD but will pick them all up.




	      No Changes; Do not change the sources.list(5) file  and  do  not
	      write index files. Everything is still checked however.  Config‐
	      uration Item: APT::CDROM::NoAct.


       --help Show a short usage summary.


	      Show the program verison.


	      Configuration File; Specify a configuration file	to  use.   The
	      program  will  read the default configuration file and then this
	      configuration file. See apt.conf(5) for syntax information.


	      Set a Configuration Option; This will set an arbitary configura‐
	      tion option. The syntax is -o Foo::Bar=bar.

       apt.conf(5), apt-get(8), sources.list(5)

       apt-cdrom returns zero on normal operation, decimal 100 on error.
