       switchconf - Change system configuration to one of many predefined


       switchconf [ -list | config_scheme ]


       switchconf  is  a  command  line  tool that helps nomad laptop users to
       easily change their configuration.


       switchconf takes only one argument. If this argument is -list,  a  list
       of   all   known   configuration   schemes   is   returned   (found  in
       $conf_top_dirs). If  the  argument  is  a  configuration  scheme,  this
       configuration will be installed on the laptop.


       The configuration file (/etc/switchconf/conf) is pretty simple.  Only 3
       entries are defined:

              This specify where are located the configurations schemes.

              This specify in which top directory you want to install the  new
              configuration. This option is pretty useful if you want to debug
              your configuration without overwritting the actual one.

       exec_dir_before, exec_dir_after
              This specify the name of the exec directory : all files included
              will be executed before or after configuration changes

       /etc/switchconf/conf  should  be  written  so it is parsable as a shell
       script - There should be no spaces between the variable  name  and  its


       You should create a directory for each configuration scheme you define,
       including  all  the  files  it  should  set  in  the   system.   Inside
       /etc/switchconf  the  directories you should create the files including
       the full path  (i.e.,  /etc/switchconf/home/etc/network/interfaces  for

       No  scheme  should  be  named  as  either  the  exec_dir_before  or the
       exec_dir_after, unless the conf_top_dirs is moved out  of  its  default
       directory, /etc/switchconf.

       Although  it  is  not really necessary, you should probably ensure that
       all the files existing in one of  the  schemes  exist  on  every  other
       scheme, in order to ensure you do not end up in a hybrid state.

       Actually no bugs are reported.
