Footnotes[edit]

  1. Alternatively you could also run the following command.
    wc -L "/var/lib/apt/lists/"*InRelease
    Then look at the line lengths. No line should exceed a line length of 1024 characters.
  2. https://github.com/marmarek/qubes-builder-debian/commit/d755d2dba79ca96187a30e1c34918c8a042c4b04
  3. 0 is the exit code and in bash shell that means success.
