Lightbulb List of all files in a UNIX system


I have a special request. I'm trying to compile a list of files from several distributions of UNIX systems (especially after a fresh or roughly fresh install). Basically, I need the output of the command "find /" when logged in as root.

$ su
$ find / > list_of_files

I am especially interested in IRIX since I don't have access to my old IRIX system anymore. I am working on setting up a FreeBSD system and I wanted to kind of implement a classic X11 system plus do some research on some of the other different tools that are specific to the different UNIX's.

Anyhow, if anyone's interested in doing that, I would be more than happy to post it up on my website for other's who are interested as well.


P.S. I will delete any lines of files listed in any "HOME" directories for privacy reasons.

epm(1)							      Easy Software Products							    epm(1)

epm - create software packages. SYNOPSIS
epm [ -a architecture ] [ -f format ] [ -g ] [ -k ] [ -m name ] [ -n[mrs] ] [ -s setup.xpm ] [ --depend ] [ --help ] [ --keep-files ] [ --output-dir directory ] [ --setup-image setup.xpm ] [ --setup-program /foo/bar/setup ] [ --setup-types setup.types ] [ -v ] [ name=value ... name=value ] product [ listfile ] DESCRIPTION
epm generates software packages complete with installation, removal, and (if necessary) patch scripts. Unless otherwise specified, the files required for product are read from a file named "product.list". The -a option ("architecture") specifies the actual architecture for the software. Without this option the generic processor architecture is used ("intel", "sparc", "mips", etc.) The -f option ("format") specifies the distribution format: aix Generate an AIX distribution suitable for installation on an AIX system. bsd Generate a BSD distribution suitable for installation on a FreeBSD, NetBSD, or OpenBSD system. deb Generate a Debian distribution suitable for installation on a Debian Linux system. inst, tardist Generate an IRIX distribution suitable for installation on an system running IRIX. lsb, lsb-signed Generate RPM packages for LSB-conforming systems. The lsb-signed format uses the GPG private key you have defined in the ~/.rpmmacros file. native Generate an native distribution. This uses rpm for Linux, inst for IRIX, pkg for Solaris, swinstall for HP-UX, bsd for FreeBSD, Net- BSD, and OpenBSD, and osx for MacOS X. All other operating systems default to the portable format. osx Generate a MacOS X software package. pkg Generate an AT&T software package. These are used primarily under Solaris. portable Generate a portable distribution based on shell scripts and tar files. The resulting distribution is installed and removed the same way on all operating systems. [default] rpm, rpm-signed Generate a Red Hat Package Manager ("RPM") distribution suitable for installation on a Red Hat Linux system. The rpm-signed format uses the GPG private key you have defined in the ~/.rpmmacros file. setld Generate a Tru64 (setld) software distribution. slackware Generate a Slackware Linux software distribution. swinstall, depot Generate a HP-UX software distribution. Executable files in the distribution are normally stripped of debugging information when packaged. To disable this functionality use the -g option. Intermediate (spec, etc.) files used to create the distribution are normally removed after the distribution is created. The -k option keeps these files in the distribution directory. The -s and --setup-image options ("setup") include the ESP Software Wizard with the specified GIF or XPM image file with the distribution. This option is currently only supported by portable and RPM distributions. The --setup-program option specifies the setup executable to use with the distribution. This option is currently only supported by portable distributions. The --setup-types option specifies the setup.types file to include with the distribution. This option is currently only supported by porta- ble distributions. The --output-dir option specifies the directory to place output file into. The default directory is based on the operating system, version, and architecture. The -v option ("verbose") increases the amount of information that is reported. Use multiple v's for more verbose output. The --depend option lists the dependent (source) files for all files in the package. Distributions normally are named "product-version-system-release-machine.ext" and "product-version-system-release-machine-patch.ext" (for patch distributions.) The "system-release-machine" information can be customized or eliminated using the -n option with the appropriate trailing letters. Using -n by itself will remove the "system-release-machine" string from the filename entirely. The "system-release- machine" information can also be customized by using the -m option with an arbitrary string. Debian, IRIX, portable, and Red Hat distributions use the extensions ".deb", ".tardist", "tar.gz", and ".rpm" respectively. LIST FILES
The EPM list file format is now described in the epm.list(5) man page. KNOWN BUGS
EPM does not currently support generation of IRIX software patches. SEE ALSO
