kiwi image info help


Provides information about the specified image description. If no specific info option is provided the command just lists basic information about the image which could also be directly obtained by reading the image XML description file. Specifying an extension option like resolve-package-list will cause a dependency resolver to run over the list of packages and thus provides more detailed information about the image description.


 Add repository with given source, type, alias and priority.
 The description must be a directory containing a kiwi XML description and optional metadata files.
--ignore-repos Ignore all repository configurations from the XML description. Using that option is usally done with a sequence of –add-repo options otherwise there are no repositories available for the processing the requested image information which could lead to an error.
 Solve package dependencies and return a list of all packages including their attributes e.g size, shasum, and more.
