Debian Package Analysis


The Debian coordinate based matching feature provides the ability to scan and evaluate Debian package dependencies found in a debian-packages.txt file.

What is supported

Steps to analyze using the Nexus IQ CLI

Create debian-packages.txt file

To list the installed packages, and save the data to the required file, run the following command:

dpkg-query -W > debian-packages.txt

Invoke a Nexus IQ CLI scan of a directory or subdirectories containing a debian-packages.txt file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found here: Nexus IQ CLI.
