How can I see the Contents of packages?

Postby hack3rcon » 2020-06-13 10:30

Hello,
I downloaded the firmware DVD from https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/10.4.0+nonfree/amd64/iso-dvd/, but how can I search in the packages for the contents?
For example, in the contents part of https://packages.debian.org/buster-backports/firmware-misc-nonfree, a list of hardware exist. Is it possible to search the items of this list on DVD?

Thank you.

Code: Select all
dpkg -L $name_of_package

Replace $name_of_package with the actual name of the package.
