xt-customize-image - Customize a freshly installed copy of GNU/Linux
xt-customize-image [options] Help Options: --help Show this scripts help information. --manual Read this scripts manual. --version Show the version number and exit. Debugging Options: --verbose Be verbose in our execution. Mandatory Options: --location The location of the new installation --dist The name of the distribution which has been installed. All other options from xen-create-image, such as the new IP address(es) to give to the new instance, will be passed as environmental variables.
This script is invoked by xen-create-image after it has created a fresh installation of Linux within a temporary location. This script will be invoked with a full copy of the arguments from xen-create-image in its environment, along with several command line arguments. The command line arguments which are mandatory are: --location - The temporary installation root of the new install --dist - The distribution which has been installed.
The distribution name is used to locate an appropriate collection of scripts, or hooks, to execute to do the actual customisation. The hooks will each be executed with a single parameter which is the directory path to the new instance. This argument is taken from the --location option. For the distribution named 'foo' the scripts will be loaded and executed from '/usr/share/xen-tools/foo.d'. Each executable will be loaded and executed in sorted order. The systems administrator can optionally provide site-specific revisions of those same hooks by placing them in the directory '/etc/xen-tools/hooks.d/' in which case a script with the same name as the one in the 'foo.d' directory above will take precedence. In this way certain hooks can be prevented from running, expanded with site-specific features which won't get overwritten on upgrades, or patched with critical bug-fixes before the upstream OS distribution provider reacts.
