NAME

       slack.conf - configuration file for slack

DESCRIPTION

       The   file   /etc/slack.conf  contains  configuration  information  for
       slack(8) and its backends.  It should contain  one  keyword-value  pair
       per  line,  separated  by an ’=’ sign.  Keywords must consist solely of
       capital letters and  underscores.   Values  may  take  any  appropriate
       format,  but must not begin with a space.  Comments start with ’#’, and
       all text from the ’#’ to the  end  of  a  line  is  ignored.   Trailing
       whitespace  on  lines  is  ignored.  Empty lines or lines consisting of
       only whitespace and comments are ignored.

       Valid keywords are:

       SOURCE The master source for slack roles.

       ROOT   The root filesystem into which to install slack roles.   Usually
              ’/’.

       ROLE_LIST
              The  location  of  the  role  list,  which lists the roles to be
              installed by default on each host.  This can be a path  relative
              to  the  source,  or  can be an entirely separate location if it
              starts with a slash  or  a  hostname  (optionally  preceeded  by
              user@).

       CACHE  A local cache directory, used as a local mirror of the SOURCE.

       STAGE  A  local  staging  directory, used as an intermediate stage when
              installing files.

       BACKUP_DIR
              A directory in which to keep dated backups for rollbacks.

EXAMPLE

       A typical file might look like this:

         # slack.conf configuration file
         SOURCE=slack-master:/slack  # source is on a remote
                                     # host named "slack-master"
         ROLE_LIST=slack-master:/roles.conf
         ROOT=/
         CACHE=/var/cache/slack
         STAGE=/var/lib/slack/stage
         BACKUP_DIR=/var/lib/slack/backups
