How can I see the Contents of packages?

#1 Post by hack3rcon »

Hello,
I downloaded the firmware DVD from https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unof ... 4/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-back ... sc-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.
