NAME

       IvmConfigBase.xml - options affecting the running of ivman(8)

DESCRIPTION

       IvmConfigBase.xml  contains a few options which affect the behaviour of
       ivman(8).

       IvmConfigBase.xml  is  parsed   as   an   XML   file   during   Ivman’s
       initialisation.  The general form of the file is:

        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <ivm:BaseConfig version="0.2" xmlns:ivm="http://www.eikke.com/ivm">

           <ivm:Option name="optionname1" value="optionvalue1" />
           <ivm:Option name="optionname2" value="optionvalue2" />
           ...

        </ivm:BaseConfig>

       An Option element can have any of the following names:

            fork   Whether  or  not  Ivman should daemonize itself (run in the
                   background).  Must be "true" or "false".  In  general,  for
                   an  instance  of Ivman running as root, you want this to be
                   true, but for an instance of Ivman running as non-root, you
                   want  this  to  be false so the program will close when the
                   user’s session ends.

            debug  Whether or not Ivman should output extra debug information.
                   Must  be  "true"  or  "false".   If Ivman is running in the
                   background, debug messages  will  go  to  the  system  log;
                   otherwise, messages will go to stdout(3).

            sleep  By  default,  a  system-wide  instance of Ivman will wait a
                   short while before mounting any device.  This is to give  a
                   user-mode  instance  of Ivman, or another volume manager, a
                   change to mount the volume  first,  since  the  system-wide
                   instance   of   Ivman   generally   has   more  restrictive
                   permissions set on its mounted volumes.   If  you  want  to
                   disable this behaviour, set sleep to "false".

            user   User account under which Ivman should run.  It is suggested
                   that you create an unprivileged user named ’ivman’, and add
                   any commands which need root privileges to ivman’s entry in
                   /etc/sudoers .  Note that Ivman should still be started  as
                   root  when  this option is used; it will automatically drop
                   privileges after initialising.

            group  Group  under  which  Ivman  should  run.   This  should  be
                   whatever  group  is required on your system in order to use
                   the ’pmount’ command.  Also, if you have a system-wide  and
                   not  a  per-user instance of Ivman running when a mountable
                   device is inserted, the device will be mounted writeable by
                   users  of  this  group.   Note  that  Ivman should still be
                   started  as  root  when  this  option  is  used;  it   will
                   automatically drop privileges after initialising.

            mountcommand
                   Command to execute to mount devices.  It is recommended you
                   leave this blank, in which case  Ivman  will  automatically
                   detect  the  best  method of mounting.  Specifically, Ivman
                   tries to  use  (in  the  following  order):  pmount-hal(1),
                   pmount(1),  mount(8).  If you specify this option, you must
                   also specify umountcommand.

            umountcommand
                   Command to execute to unmount devices.  It  is  recommended
                   you leave this blank.  If you specify this option, you must
                   also specify mountcommand.

            umask  If neither of mountcommand or umountcommand are  specified,
                   and  Ivman is running as a system-wide instance, and pmount
                   was detected, then  volumes  will  be  mounted  using  this
                   umask.   When  not  using  pmount,  umask  should be set in
                   fstab(5), or set in HAL policy files if fstab-sync is being
                   used.  If ommitted, defaults to 022 (rwxr-xr-x).

       mountcommand  and  umountcommand  support  (and,  in  most  cases, will
       require) substitution of HAL device properties. This is accomplished by
       surrounding  the property name with $ symbols. For instance, to use the
       traditional mount(8) utility for mounting, you would  set  mountcommand
       to  "mount  the  characters  ’  and  "  are replaced with ?, so you can
       surround the substitution with quotes without fear.

       Remember that this is an XML file, which means  that  characters  which
       have  a  special  meaning  in  XML (entities) need to be escaped.  Some
       characters which are popular in shell scripting (&,  <,  >)  are  among
       these  special  characters.   As a quick reference, & becomes &amp; , <
       becomes &lt; , > becomes &gt; , ’ becomes &apos; and " becomes &quot; .
