NAME

       cupt.conf - configuration file for Cupt

SYNOPSIS

       $APT_CONFIG, /etc/apt/apt.conf, /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/*, $CUPT_PRE_CONFIG,
       /etc/cupt/pre.conf, /etc/cupt/cupt.conf, /etc/cupt/cupt.conf.d/*

DESCRIPTION

       Cupt uses the same configuration syntax as apt.conf(5), which see.

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

       Firstly, Cupt uses following APT configuration variables:

       acquire::*::dl-limit, acquire::*::timeout, acquire::*::proxy,
       acquire::http::allowredirect, acquire::retries, apt::cache::allversions,
       apt::cache::important, apt::cache::namesonly, apt::cache::recursedepends,
       apt::default-release, apt::install-recommends, apt::install-suggests,
       apt::neverautoremove, apt::get::assume-yes, apt::get::allowunauthenticated,
       apt::get::automaticremove, apt::get::list-cleanup, apt::get::purge,
       apt::update::pre-invoke, apt::update::post-invoke, apt::update::post-invoke-success, dir,
       dir::bin::dpkg, dir::cache, dir::cache::archives, dir::etc, dir::etc::sourcelist,
       dir::etc::sourceparts, dir::etc::parts, dir::etc::main, dir::etc::preferences,
       dir::ignore-files-silently, dir::state, dir::state::extendedstates, dir::state::status,
       dir::etc::trusted, dir::etc::trustedparts dpkg::options, dpkg::pre-invoke,

       See apt.conf(5) for their meanings.

       Secondly, Cupt introduces cupt-specific configuration variables.

   variable types
       boolean
           false may be specified as "0" or "false" or "no", everything else interpretes as true

           if undefined, interpretes as false

       integer
           signed 32-bit integer on 32-bit systems, signed 64-bit integer on 64-bit systems

           if undefined, interpretes as 0

       string
           interpreted as is

           if undefined, interpretes as empty string

       list
           list of strings

           if undefined, intepretes as empty list

   variables
       cupt::cache::limit-releases::by-*::type
           string, determines the type of limiting repository releases to use

           All repository indexes which are disallowed by this option are not added to the
           package cache, in other words, they are completely hidden.

           '*' can be 'archive' or 'codename'

           Possible values:

           none
               No limiting will be done for this category. The default.

           include
               Only values of the 'cupt::cache::limit-releases::by-*' option will be allowed.

           exclude
               Only values which are not present in the value of the
               'cupt::cache::limit-releases::by-*' option will be allowed.

           Example:

           If you set 'cupt::cache::limit-releases::by-archive::type' to 'include' and
           'cupt::cache::limit-releases::by-archive' to '{ "stable", "testing" };', only
           repositories with archive names 'stable' and 'testing' will be added to the cache.

       cupt::cache::limit-releases::by-*
           list of allowed/disallowed release attributes, see above

       cupt::cache::pin::addendums::but-automatic-upgrades
           integer, specifies priority change for versions that come only from sources which have
           both 'not automatic' and 'but automatic upgrades' flags.  Defaults to 4200.

       cupt::cache::pin::addendums::downgrade
           integer, specifies priority change for versions that are smaller than currently
           installed. Defaults to -10000.

       cupt::cache::pin::addendums::hold
           integer, specifies priority increase for versions that are put on hold.  Defaults to
           1000000. Set this option to 0 if you do not want to obey holds.  You may want to
           increase this option in (very unlikely to happen) situations: when you have thousands
           of manually installed packages and very large query; when you have a manually crafted
           pin priorities system with very large pin values.

       cupt::cache::pin::addendums::not-automatic
           integer, specifies priority increase for versions that come only from 'not automatic'
           sources. Defaults to -4000.

           If you change the value of this option, you might want to change the value of the
           option "cupt::cache::pin::addendums::but-automatic-upgrades" accordingly.

       cupt::cache::release-file-expiration::ignore
           boolean, if set to true, Cupt will ignore the fact that a Release file is expired and
           use it anyway. False by default.

           Warning! Setting this option to true will make the system vulnerable to a replay
           attack on package manager indexes.

       cupt::console::allow-untrusted
           boolean, don't treat using untrusted packages as dangerous action

       cupt::console::assume-yes
           boolean, see cupt(1) --assume-yes

       cupt::console::actions-preview::package-indicators::manually-installed
           boolean, whether to print "{m}" prefix for manually installed packages in non-color
           mode. Enabled by default.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::package-indicators::automatically-installed
           boolean, whether to print "{a}" prefix for automatically installed packages in non-
           color mode. Disabled by default.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-not-preferred
           string, determines whether packages which will have a not preferred version after the
           proposed changes are done should be shown in the actions preview.  Defaults to
           'for-upgrades'.

           Possible values:

           no  Do not show.

           for-upgrades
               Show for upgrade subcommands (namely, for "full-upgrade", "safe-upgrade" and the
               second part of "dist-upgrade").

           yes Show always.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-archives
           boolean, if true, release archive(s) will be shown for each package in the actions
           preview. False by default.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-codenames
           boolean, if true, release codename(s) will be shown for each package in the actions
           preview. False by default.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-components
           boolean, if true, release component(s) will be shown for each package in the actions
           preview. False by default.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-details
           boolean, if true, details of planned actions will be shown in the actions preview.
           True by default.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-empty-versions
           boolean, if true, empty versions (i.e. removed or not installed packages) will be
           shown as '<empty>' instead of being omitted

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-size-changes
           boolean, if true, a change in the disk space usage will be shown for each package in
           the actions preview. False by default.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-reasons
           boolean, see cupt(1) --show-reasons

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-summary
           string, tristate ("yes", "no" or "auto"), controls whether summary of planned actions
           will be shown in the actions preview or not. Defaults to "yes".

           Currently, "auto" means that summary will be shown when there are >= 100 change
           entries in total.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-versions
           boolean, if true, a version will be shown for each package in the actions preview.
           False by default.

       cupt::console::actions-preview::show-vendors
           boolean, if true, a version will be shown for each package in the actions preview.
           False by default.

       cupt::console::show-progress-messages
           boolean, if true, package management actions will print stage messages ("Building a
           cache", "Resolving possible unmet dependencies" etc.). True by default.

       cupt::console::use-colors
           string, specifies whether to use colors in the console interface. Defaults to "auto".

           For now concerns only the action preview.

           Available values:

           no  Don't use colors.

           yes Use colors.

           auto
               Use colors if the standard output is a terminal and a terminal type seem to allow
               colors.

       cupt::console::warnings::removal-of-essential
           boolean, treat removals of essential packages as dangerous action. True by default.

       cupt::console::warnings::removal-of-important
           boolean, treat removals of important packages as dangreous action. True by default.

       cupt::directory
           string, base directory for all cupt::directory::* options

       cupt::directory::configuration
           string, base directory for Cupt-specific configuration files

       cupt::directory::configuration::main
           string, relative file path for the Cupt main configuration file (same format as
           apt.conf(5))

       cupt::directory::configuration::main-parts
           string, relative directory path for additional Cupt configuration files (same format
           as apt.conf(5))

       cupt::directory::configuration::pre
           string, relative file path for the Cupt preconfiguration file which is read before
           paths of any other configuration files are calculated. This is the only place where
           one can effectively override default values of dir::etc and
           cupt::directory::configuration options and/or their suboptions. The environment
           variable CUPT_PRE_CONFIG overrides this option if defined.

       cupt::directory::log
           string, relative file path for the log file

       cupt::directory::state
           string, directory which contains Cupt state info

       cupt::directory::state::lists
           string, directory for repository indexes

       cupt::downloader::max-simultaneous-downloads
           integer, positive, specifies maximum number of simultaneous downloads. Defaults to 2.

       cupt::downloader::protocols::protocol::priority
           integer, positive, defines the priority of download protocol protocol, determines an
           order in which different URIs for the same file will be tried. Defaults to 100.

       cupt::downloader::protocols::protocol::methods::method::priority
           positive number, defines the priority of download method method, the method with
           maximum priority will be used for downloading the URI of protocol protocol.  Defaults
           to 100.

       cupt::downloader::protocols::protocol::methods
           list, names of the methods available to download protocol protocol

       cupt::languages::indexes
           string, specifies localizations of what languages should be used for repository
           indexes. Defaults to "environment,en".

           The value is comma-delimited (no spaces allowed) list of localization specificators.
           Localization specificator is either:

           environment
               A special string which is substituted by the current locale (precisely, by a value
               of the environment variable LC_MESSAGES).

           none
               A special string which indicates no localization.

           language_code[_country_code]
               A language code (for example: 'fi', 'fr', 'ru') or a language code with a country
               code (for example, 'pt_BR', 'zh_CN').

           If the localization specificator contains a country code, the additional specificator
           without a country code will be implicitly used as fallback.

           Localization specificators should be listed in the preference order. Duplicates are
           allowed but ignored.

           Examples:

           fi,ru,fr
               Download Finnish, Russian and French translations. For every description, try to
               use Finnish translation; if it's not available, try to use Russian one; if it's
               also not available; try to use French one; else use an original one.

           pt_BR
               Download Portuguese (Brazil) and Portuguese localizations. Use Portuguese (Brazil)
               translation; if it's not available, use Portuguese translation; else use an
               original one.

           de,environment,fr_FR
               (Supposing LC_MESSAGES is 'pl_PL.UTF-8')

               Download and use these translations, in the following order: German, Polish
               (Poland), Polish, French (France), French.

       cupt::update::check-release-files
           boolean, if set, Release files will be checked for the validity (including the
           expiration check and a signature if present) at the download stage. True by default.

       cupt::update::compression-types::*::priority
           integer, defines preference to download compressed files with higher priority first.
           100 by default.

           '*' can be 'gz', 'bz2', 'lzma', 'xz', and 'uncompressed'.

           Set some option to <100 value to make it low-precedence than default, and >100 to make
           it high-precedence than default.

           If some methods have the equal priority (which is the default setting), then files
           with smaller size with be chosen over the files with bigger size.

           Example:

           You have a low-speed CPU but rather high-speed internet connection and want to prefer
           gzip over lzma and lzma over bzip2. Then you have to set options like:

             cupt::update::compression-types
             {
               gz::priority "200";
               lzma::priority "150";
             }

           Also, if you have a local mirror, which may store uncompressed indexes too (an
           official Debian archive doesn't store them), you may set also

           cupt::update::compression-types::uncompressed::priority "300";

       cupt::update::generate-index-of-index
           boolean, specifies whether to build "index-of-index" for every Packages and Sources.
           If set to true, slightly increases the time of postprocessing after downloading new
           metadata files but speedes up significantly the initialization time for every
           invocation. True by default.

       cupt::update::use-index-diffs
           boolean, specifies whether to try downloading repository index deltas and apply them
           locally before downloading the full index. True by default.

           When turned on, this option saves bandwidth but increases CPU and disk usage while
           updating. On the fast unlimited connections (say, >= 2 Mbit/s, but heavily depends on
           many other factors) you would likely want to turn off this option.

       cupt::resolver::keep-recommends
           boolean, specifies whether should resolver try to keep already installed recommended
           packages or not. True by default.

       cupt::resolver::keep-suggests
           boolean, specifies whether should resolver try to keep already installed suggested
           packages or not. False by default.

       cupt::resolver::auto-remove
           boolean, see cupt(1) --no-auto-remove

       cupt::resolver::max-leaf-count
           integer, specifies how many leaves the solution tree will grow before resolver will
           give up. -1 means infinite. -1 by default.

       cupt::resolver::max-solution-count
           integer, positive, see cupt(1) --max-solution-count

       cupt::resolver::no-autoremove-if-rdepends-exist
           list of regular expressions; if the package name matches to any of those regular
           expressions it will be not considered for auto-removal if there are any reverse
           dependencies installed. Empty by default.

           Example (simplified real situation):

            Package: xserver-xorg
            Depends: xserver-xorg-video-all | xorg-driver-video

            Package: xserver-xorg-video-nv
            Provides: xorg-driver-video

            Package: xserver-xorg-video-radeon
            Provides: xorg-driver-video

            You have:
            xserver-xorg: manually installed
            xserver-xorg-video-all: not installed
            xserver-xorg-video-nv: automatically installed
            xserver-xorg-video-radeon: automatically installed

           Both xserver-xorg-video-nv and xserver-xorg-video-radeon satisfy the dependency of
           xserver-xorg, so only one of them is needed in the system. Therefore, by default one
           of these two will be considered for auto-removal. If you add a regular expression
           'xserver-xorg-video.*' to the value of this option, none of packages providing xorg-
           driver-video will be considered for auto-removal as long as xserver-xorg is installed.

       cupt::resolver::no-remove
           boolean, see cupt(1) --no-remove

       cupt::resolver::synchronize-by-source-versions
           string, this option controls whether and how the native resolver will attempt to keep
           all binary packages from the same source package at the same source version

           This option uses the information from source packages. No synchronization will be
           performed for the versions which have not a corresponding source version in the
           repository.

           Possible values:

           none
               Don't attempt to synchronize. This is the default value.

           soft
               Don't forbid any modifications to the packages and attempt to synchronize related
               binary packages when possible upon the modifications of certain binary package.

           hard
               Forbid any modifications to the packages when at least one related binary package
               cannot be synchronized with the modified one.

       cupt::resolver::track-reasons
           boolean, specifies whether 'suggestedPackages::reasons' is filled in the
           Resolver::Offer. False by default.

       cupt::resolver::type
           string, see cupt(1) --resolver

       cupt::resolver::score::<part>
           The group of integer options which control internal resolver's score calculation.
           Values are absolute.

           <part> can be one of:

           new installing a new package

           removal
               removal of an existing package

           removal-of-essential
               removal of an existing essential package (a general removal option is applied as
               well)

           removal-of-autoinstalled
               removal of an automatically installed package (a general removal option is applied
               as well)

           upgrade
               installing a higher version of an existing package

           downgrade
               installing a lower version of an existing package

           position-penalty
               when several actions may be performed to resolve a problem, apply N penalties to
               N-th action (counting from 0)

           quality-adjustment
               the value will be added to each action's score

           unsatisfied-recommends
               some 'recommends' dependency is not satisfied (when requested)

           unsatisfied-suggests
               some 'suggests' dependency is not satisfied (when requested)

           failed-synchronization
               some source version synchronization cannot be performed (when
               cupt::resolver::synchronize-source-versions is 'soft')

           version-factor::common
               defines (in percents), how much version score difference affects the action score

           version-factor::negative
               defines (in percents) scaling of negative version scores (applied after version-
               factor)

           version-factor::priority-downgrade
               defines (in percents) scaling of version score if version priority difference is
               negative. For calculations regarding this factor, if there is no original version,
               its priority is 0, if there is no supposed version, its priority is the default
               priority for versions from a default package archive.

       cupt::worker::archives-space-limit
           integer, bytes, positive, if set, limits the worker to not download more than
           specified amount of archives, and use download-install-clean algorithm (download
           archives, install packages, clean just downloaded archives).  Worker will try to split
           all actions into unrelated changesets so each changeset require only limited download
           space. Any system changes will be started only if changesets are generated
           successfully.

       cupt::worker::defer-triggers
           string, specifies whether should worker defer dpkg trigger processing to the end of
           the whole operation or not. When enabled, speeds up large-amount actions, but if the
           operation will somewhy be interrupted, leaves system in the interim trigger state,
           which can be fixed by manual run of 'dpkg --triggers-only --pending' command. Defaults
           to "auto".

           Available values:

           no  Disable deferring triggers.
