DESCRIPTION

       lh config is a high-level command (porcelain)  of  live-helper(7),  the
       Debian Live tool suite.

       lh  config  populates  the  configuration directory for live-helper. By
       default, this directory is named 'config' and is created in the current
       directory where lh config was executed.

       Note:  Currently lh config tries to be smart and sets defaults for some
       options depending on the setting of other  options  (e.g.  which  linux
       packages  to be used depending on if a lenny system gets build or not).
       This means that when generating a new configuration, you should call lh
       config  only  once with all options specified. Calling it several times
       with only a subset of the  options  each  can  result  in  non  working
       configurations.  This  is also caused by the fact that lh config called
       with one option only changes that option, and leaves everything else as
       is  unless  its  not  defined.  However, lh config does warn about know
       impossible or likely impossible combinations that  would  lead  to  non
       working        live        systems.       If       unsure,       remove
       config/{binary,bootstrap,chroot,common,source}  and  call   lh   config
       again.

OPTIONS

       In  addition  to its specific options lh config understands all generic
       live-helper options. See live-helper(7) for  a  complete  list  of  all
       generic live-helper options.

       --apt apt|aptitude
           defines  if  apt-get  or  aptitude is used to install packages when
           building the image. When building etch  images,  this  defaults  to
           aptitude. Every other distribution defaults to apt.

       --apt-ftp-proxy URL
           sets the ftp proxy to be used by apt. By default, this is empty but
           if  the  host  has  the   environment   variable   ftp_proxy   set,
           apt-ftp-proxy gets automatically set to the value of ftp_proxy.

       --apt-http-proxy URL
           sets  the  http  proxy to be used by apt. By default, this is empty
           but if the  host  has  the  environment  variable  http_proxy  set,
           apt-http-proxy gets automatically set to the value of http_proxy.

       --apt-pdiffs true|false
           defines whetever apt should use incremental package indices feature
           or not. This is true by default.

       --apt-options OPTION|"OPTIONS"
           defines the default options that will be appended to every apt call
           that  is  made  inside  chroot during the building of the image. By
           default, this is set to --yes to allow non-interactive installation
           of packages.

       --aptitude-options OPTION|"OPTIONS"
           defines the default options that will be appended to every aptitude
           call that is made inside chroot during building of  the  image.  By
           default,  this  is  set  to  --assume-yes  to allow non-interactive
           installation of packages.

       --apt-pipeline DEPTH
           sets the depth of the apt/aptitude pipeline.  In  cases  where  the
           remote  server is not RFC conforming or buggy (such as Squid 2.0.2)
           this option can be  a  value  from  0  to  5  indicating  how  many
           outstanding  requests  APT  should  send.  A  value of zero MUST be
           specified if the remote  host  does  not  properly  linger  on  TCP
           connections  -  otherwise  data  corruption will occur. Hosts which
           require this are in violation of RFC 2068. By default,  live-helper
           does not set this option.

       --apt-recommends true|false
           defines  if  apt should install recommended packages automatically.
           By default, this is true except in emdebian mode.

       --apt-secure true|false
           defines if apt should check repository signatures. This is true  by
           default.

       -a|--architecture ARCHITECTURE
           defines the architecture of the to be build image. By default, this
           is set to the host architecture. Note that  you  cannot  crossbuild
           for another architecture if your host system is not able to execute
           binaries  for  the  target  architecture  natively.  For   example,
           building amd64 images on i386 and vice versa is possile if you have
           a 64bit capable i386 processor and the right kernel.  But  building
           powerpc images on an i386 system is not possible.

       -b|--binary-images iso|iso-hybrid|net|tar|usb-hdd
           defines  the  image type to build. By default this is set to iso to
           build  CD/DVD  images,  for  squeeze  and  newer  it  defaults   to
           iso-hybrid.

       --binary-filesystem fat16|fat32|ext2
           defines  the filesystem to be used in the image type. This only has
           an effect if the selected binary image type does allow to choose  a
           filesystem.  For  example,  when selection iso the resulting CD/DVD
           has always the filesystem ISO9660. When building usb-hdd images for
           usb  sticks,  this is active. Note that it defaults to fat16 on all
           architectures except sparc where it defaults  to  ext2.  Also  note
           that  if  you  choose  fat16  and  your resulting binary image gets
           bigger than 2GB, the binary filesystem automatically gets  switched
           to fat32.

       --binary-indices true|false|none
           defines  if  the resulting images should have binary indices or not
           and defaults to true. If set to none, no indices  are  included  at
           all.

       --bootappend-install PARAMETER|"PARAMETERS"
           sets boot parameters specific to debian-installer, if included.

       --bootappend-live PARAMETER|"PARAMETERS"
           sets  boot  parameters  specific to debian-live. A complete list of
           boot parameters can be found, for etch, in the manpage  of  casper,
           for  all  other  distributions in the manpage of live-initramfs. On
           the images, a list of all parameters (without comments) is included
           in the /parameters.txt.

       --bootloader grub|syslinux|yaboot
           defines  which  bootloader  is  beeing used in the generated image.
           This has only an effect if the  selected  binary  image  type  does
           allow  to  choose  the bootloader. For example, if you build a iso,
           always syslinux (or more precise, isolinux)  is  being  used.  Also
           note  that some combinations of binary images types and bootloaders
           may be possible but live-helper  does  not  support  them  yet.  lh
           config  will  fail to create such a not yet supported configuration
           and give a explanation about it. For usb-hdd images  on  amd64  and
           i386, the default is syslinux. yaboot is only used on powerpc.

       --bootstrap cdebootstrap|cdebootstrap-static|debootstrap|copy
           defines  which  program  is  used  to  bootstrap the debian chroot,
           default is debootstrap. Note that if you set the bootstrap  program
           to copy, then your host system is copied. This can be useful if you
           want to convert/clone your existing host system into a live system,
           however,  make  sure  you  do  have  enough free space as this can,
           depending on your host system, get quite big.

       --bootstrap-config FILE
           sets a custom configuration  file  for  the  boostrap  programm  of
           choice  and  is  empty  by  default. Refere to the documentation of
           debootstrap or cdebootstrap for more information about  that.  When
           the bootstrap program is set to copy, this has no effect.

       -f|--bootstrap-flavour minimal|standard
           defines  if  the  bootstrap  program  should bootstrap the standard
           system (all packages of priority required and important,  which  is
           the  default)  or  a  minimal  system  (only  packages  of priority
           required, plus apt).

       --bootstrap-keyring PACKAGE
           sets  the  archive  keyring  package  to  be   used.   Default   is
           debian-archive-keyring.

       --cache true|false
           defines  globally  if  any  cache  should be used at all. Different
           caches can be controled through the their own options.

       --cache-indices true|false
           defines if downloaded package indices and lists  should  be  cached
           which  is  false  by default. Enabling it would allow to rebuild an
           image completely  offline,  however,  you  would  not  get  updates
           anymore then.

       --cache-packages true|false
           defines if downloaded packages files should be cached which is true
           by default. Disabling it does save space consumtion in  your  build
           directory,  but  remember  that  you  will  cause  much unnecessary
           traffic if you do a couple  of  rebuilds.  In  general  you  should
           always  leave  it  true,  however,  in  some  particular rare build
           setups, it can be faster to refetch packages from the local network
           mirror rather than to utilize the local disk.

       --cache-stages true|false|STAGE|"STAGES"
           sets which stages should be cached. By default set to bootstrap. As
           an exception to the normal stage names, also  rootfs  can  be  used
           here  which  does  only  cache  the  generated  root  filesystem in
           filesystem.{dir,ext*,squashfs}. This is useful  during  development
           if you want to rebuild the binary stage but not regenerate the root
           filesystem all the time.

       --checksums md5|sha1|sha256|none
           defines  if  the  binary  image  should  contain  a   file   called
           md5sums.txt,  sha1sums.txt  and/or  sha256sums.txt. These lists all
           files on the image together with their checksums. This in turn  can
           be  used  by live-initramfs' built-in integrity-check to verify the
           medium if specified at boot prompt. In general, this should not  be
           false  and  is  an important feature of live system released to the
           public. However, during development of very big images it can  save
           some time by not calculating the checksums.

       --build-with-chroot true|false
           defines  whetever  live-helper should use the tools from within the
           chroot to build the binary image or not by using and including  the
           host  systems  tools.  This  is  a very dangerous option, using the
           tools of the host system can lead to tainted and even  non-bootable
           images  if  the  host systems version of the required tools (mainly
           these are the bootloaders such as syslinux, grub  and  yaboot,  and
           the  auxilliary  tools  such  as dosfstools, genisoimage, squashfs-
           tools and others) do not exactely match what is present  at  build-
           time  in  the  target  distribution.  Never  do disable this option
           unless you are exactely sure what you are doing and have completely
           understood its consequences.

       --chroot-filesystem ext2|ext3|squashfs|plain|jffs2
           defines   which  filesystem  type  should  be  used  for  the  root
           filesystem image. If you use plain, then  no  filesystem  image  is
           created  and  the  root  filesystem content is copied on the binary
           image filesystem as flat files. Depending on what binary filesystem
           you have choosen, it may not be possible to build with a plain root
           filesystem, e.g. fat16/fat32 and plain don't work as linux does not
           support to run on them.

       --clean
           minimizes  config  directory  by  automatically removing unused and
           thus empty subdirectories.

       -c|--conffile FILE
           using a user specified alternative configuration file  in  addition
           to the normally used one in the config directory.

       --debconf-frontend dialog|editor|noninteractive|readline
           defines what value the debconf frontend should be set to inside the
           chroot. Note that setting it to anything by  noninteractive,  which
           is the default, makes your build asking questions during the build.

       --debconf-nowarnings true|false
           defines if warnings of debconf should be displayed or not. Warnings
           from debconf are generally very rare and by default, we skipp them,
           if  any,  in  order  to  keep  the  build  process   entirely   non
           interactive.

       --debconf-priority low|medium|high|critical
           defines what value the debconf priority shoul dbe set to inside the
           chroot. By default, it is set to critical, which means that  almost
           no  questions  are  displayed. Note that this only has an effect if
           you use any debconf frontend different from noninteractive.

       --debian-installer true|cdrom|netinst|netboot|businesscard|live|false
           defines which type, if  any,  of  the  debian-installer  should  be
           included in the resulting binary image. By default, no installer is
           included. All available flavours  except  live  are  the  identical
           configurations  used  on  the  installer  media produced by regular
           debian-cd.  When  live  is  choosen,  the  live-installer  udeb  is
           included  so that debian-installer will behave different than usual
           - instead of installing the debian system from  packages  from  the
           medium or the network, it installs the live system to the disk.

       --debian-installer-distribution daily|CODENAME
           defines the distribution where the debian-installer files should be
           taken  out  from.  Normally,  this  should  be  set  to  the   same
           distribution  as the live system. However, some times, one wants to
           use a newer or even daily built installer.

       --debian-installer-preseedfile FILE|URL
           sets the filename or  URL  for  an  optionally  used  and  included
           preseeding file for debian-installer.

       --debian-installer-gui true|false
           defines  if  the debian-installer graphical GTK interface should be
           true or not. In Debian mode and for most versions of  Ubuntu,  this
           option is true, whereas otherwise false, by default.

       -d|--distribution CODENAME
           defines the distribution of the resulting live system.

       --dump
           prepares   a   report   of   the   currently  present  live  system
           configuration and the version of live-helper used. This  is  useful
           to  provide  if  you submit bug reports, we do get all informations
           required for us to locate and replicate an error.

       -e|--encryption false|aes128|aes192|aes256
           defines if the root filesystem  should  be  encrypted  or  not.  By
           default, this is false.

       --fdisk fdisk|fdisk.dist
           sets  the  filename  of  the fdisk binary from the host system that
           should be used. This is autodetected and does  generally  not  need
           any customization.

       --grub-splash FILE
           defines  the  name  of  an  optional  to  be included splash screen
           graphic for the grub bootloader.

       --gzip-options OPTION|"OPTIONS"
           defines the default options that will be appended to (almost) every
           gzip call during the building of the image. By default, this is set
           to --best to use highest (but slowest) compression. Dynamically, if
           the host system supports it, also --rsyncable is added.

       --hooks FILE
           defines          which          hooks          available         in
           /usr/share/live-helper/examples/hooks    should    be    activated.
           Normally,  there  are  no  hooks  executed.  Make sure you know and
           understood the hook before you enable it.

       --hostname NAME
           sets the hostname of the live system.

       --ignore-system-defaults
           lh   config    by    default    reads    system    defaults    from
           /etc/default/live-helper  when  generating a new live system config
           directory. This is useful if you want to set global settings,  such
           as  mirror  locations,  and  don't  want to specify them all of the
           time.

       --includes PATH
           sets the path to the includes that live-helper  is  going  to  use,
           e.g.  additional minimal documentation that you want to have on all
           live    systems.     By     default,     this     is     set     to
           /usr/share/live-helper/includes/.

       --initramfs auto|live-initramfs|casper
           sets  the  name  of  package that contains the live system specific
           initramfs modification. By default, auto is used, which means  that
           at  build  time of the image rather than on configuration time, the
           value will be expanded to casper when building etch systems and  to
           live-initramfs for all other systems.

       --interactive shell
           defines  if  after the chroot stage and before the beginning of the
           binary stage, a interactive shell login should be  spawned  in  the
           chroot  in order to allow you to do manual customizations. Once you
           close the shell with logout or exit, the  build  will  continue  as
           usual. Note that it's strongly discouraged to use this for anything
           else than testing. Modifications that  should  be  present  in  all
           builds  of  a  live  system  should be properly made through hooks.
           Everything else destroys the beauty of  being  able  to  completely
           automatise  the  build  process  and  making it non interactive. By
           default, this is of course false.

       --iso-application NAME
           sets the APPLICATION field in the  header  of  a  resulting  CD/DVD
           image  and  defaults  to  "Debian  Live"  in  debian  mode,  and to
           "Emdebian Live" in emdebian mode, and "Ubuntu Live" in ubuntu mode.

       --iso-preparer NAME
           sets  the PREPARER field in the header of a resulting CD/DVD image.
           By   default    this    is    set    to    "live-helper    VERSION;
           http://packages.qa.debian.org/live-helper",   whereas   VERSION  is
           expanded to the version of live-helper that was used to  build  the
           image.

       --iso-publisher NAME
           sets the PUBLISHED field in the header of a resulting CD/DVD image.
           By   default,   this   is   set   to    'Debian    Live    project;
           http:/live.debian.net/;  debian-live@lists.debian.org'. Remember to
           change  this  to  the  appropriate  values  at  latest   when   you
           distributing custom and unofficial images.

       --iso-volume NAME
           sets  the  VOLUME  field  in  the  header of a resulting CD/DVD and
           defaults to '(MODE) (DISTRIBUTION) (DATE)' whereas MODE is expanded
           to the name of the mode in use, DISTRIBUTION the distribution name,
           and DATE with the current date and time  of  the  generation.  When
           running  in debian-release mode however, it will instead default to
           'Debian (VERSION) (ARCHITECTURE) live' where  VERSION  becomes  the
           numerical  version  of  the  release  being  built and ARCHITECTURE
           becomes the name of the architecture.

       --jffs2-eraseblock SIZE
           sets the eraseblock size for a JFFS2 (Second Journalling Flash File
           System)  filesystem.  The  default  is  64 KiB. If you use an erase
           block size different than the erase block size of  the  target  MTD
           device,  JFFS2  may not perform optimally. If the SIZE specified is
           below 4096, the units are assumed to be KiB.

       --keyring-packages PACKAGE|"PACKAGES"
           sets the keyring package or additional keyring packages. By default
           this is set to debian-archive-keyring.

       -l|--language LANGUAGE
           sets  the  language  of  a  live  system by installing l10n related
           packages. It doesn't  enable  generation  of  the  correct  locales
           through  setting  the  right boot parameters, those need to be done
           through the bootappend-live parameter.

       -k|--linux-flavours FLAVOUR|"FLAVOURS"
           sets the kernel flavours to be installed. Note  that  in  case  you
           specify  more  than  that  the first will be configured the default
           kernel that gets booted.

       --linux-packages "PACKAGES"
           sets the internal name of the kernel packages naming scheme. If you
           use  debian kernel packages, you will not have to adjust it. If you
           decide to use custom kernel packages that do not follow the  debian
           naming  scheme,  remember  to  set  this  option to the stub of the
           packages only (for debian this is linux-image-2.6), so  that  STUB-
           FLAVOUR   results   in  a  valid  package  name  (for  debian  e.g.
           linux-image-2.6-486). Preferably you use the meta package name,  if
           any,  for  the stub, so that your configuration is ABI independent.
           Also don't forget that you have to  include  stubs  of  the  binary
           modules  packages  for  unionfs  or aufs, and squashfs if you built
           them out-of-tree.

       --losetup losetup|losetup.orig
           sets the filename of the losetup binary from the host  system  that
           should  be  used.  This is autodetected and does generally not need
           any customization.

       --memtest memtest86+|memtest86|none
           defines if memtest, memtest86+ or no memory tester at all should be
           included  as  secondary  bootloader  configuration.  This  is  only
           available on amd64 and i386 and defaults to memtest86+.

       -m|--mirror-bootstrap URL
           sets the location of the debian package mirror that should be  used
           to bootstrap from.

       --mirror-binary URL
           sets  the  location of the debian package mirror that should end up
           configured in the final image and which is the one a user would see
           and  use.  This  has not necessarily to be the same that is used to
           build the image, e.g. if you use a local mirror but want to have an
           official      mirror      in     the     image.     By     default,
           'http://cdn.debian.net/debian/' is used.

       --mirror-binary-security URL
           sets the location of the debian security package mirror that should
           end    up   configuered   in   the   final   image.   By   default,
           'http://cdn.debian.net/debian-security/' is used.

       --mirror-chroot URL
           sets the location of the debian package mirror that will be used to
           fetch  the  packages in order to build the live system. By default,
           this points to http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ which may not be  a
           good default if you live outside the U.S.

       --mirror-chroot-security URL
           sets  the  location of the debian security package mirror that will
           be used to fetch the packages in order to build the live system. By
           default, this points to http://security.debian.org/debian/.

       --mirror-debian-installer URL
           sets  the  location  of  the  mirror that will be used to fetch the
           debian installer images. By default, this points to the same mirror
           used to build the live system.

       --mode debian|emdebian|ubuntu
           defines a global mode to load project specific defaults. By default
           this is set to debian.

       --net-root-filesystem nfs|cfs
           defines the filesystem that will be configured  in  the  bootloader
           configuration for your netboot image. This defaults to nfs.

       --net-root-mountoptions OPTIONS
           sets additional options for mounting the root filesystem in netboot
           images and is by default empty.

       --net-root-path PATH
           sets the file path  that  will  be  configured  in  the  bootloader
           configuration   for   your   netboot   image.   This   defaults  to
           /srv/debian-live in debian mode and to /srv/emebian-live when being
           in emdebian mode, and /srv/ubuntu-live when in ubuntu mode.

       --net-root-server IP|HOSTNAME
           sets  the  IP or hostname that will be configured in the bootloader
           configuration for the root filesystem of your netboot  image.  This
           defaults to 192.168.1.1.

       --net-cow-filesystem nfs|cfs
           defines  the  filesystem  type  for  the  copy-on-write  layer  and
           defaults to nfs.

       --net-cow-mountoptions OPTIONS
           sets additional options for mounting  the  copy-on-write  layer  in
           netboot images and is by default empty.

       --net-cow-path PATH
           defines  the  path  to  client  writable  filesystem. Anywhere that
           client_mac_address is specified in  the  path  live-initramfs  will
           substitute the MAC address of the client delimited with hyphens.

           Example:
           /export/hosts/client_mac_address
           /export/hosts/00-16-D3-33-92-E8

       --net-cow-server IP|HOSTNAME
           sets  the  IP or hostname that will be configured in the bootloader
           configuration for the  copy-on-write  filesystem  of  your  netboot
           image and is by default empty.

       --net-tarball bzip2|gzip|tar|none
           defines  the format of the netboot image. Choosing tar results in a
           not compressed tarball, bzip2  and  gzip  in  a  bzip2  resp.  gzip
           compressed  tarball.  Choosing none leads to no tarball at all, the
           plain binary directory is  considered  the  output  in  this  case.
           Default is gzip.

       -p|--packages-lists LIST|"LISTS"
           defines   which  lists  available  in  /usr/share/live-helper/lists
           should be used. By default, this is set to standard. Note  that  in
           case  you  have  local  packages lists, you don't need to list them
           here. Putting them into config/chroot_local-packageslists is enough
           (the filename needs to have the .list suffix though).

       --packages PACKAGE|"PACKAGES"
           defines  one  or  more packages to be installed in the live system.
           This is a quick and convenient place to add  a  few  packages  when
           building  an  image  (limited by the max length of shell). Packages
           that should be permanently installed should be  put  into  a  local
           packages list.

       -r, --repositories REPOSITORY|"REPOSITORIES"
           enables  one  of available third-party repository configurations in
           /usr/share/live-helper/repositories.

       --root-command sudo
           controls if live-helper should use sudo  internally  to  build  the
           live  image. Note that this is not well tested and that you should,
           when relying on sudo, call the individual live-helper command  with
           sudo itself.

       --use-fakeroot true|false
           controls  if  live-helper should utilize fakeroot and fakechroot to
           try  and  avoid  requiring  root  privillages  where  possible.  By
           default, this option is false.

       --archive-areas ARCHIVE_AREA|"ARCHIVE_AREAS"
           defines  which  package  archive areas of a debian packages archive
           should be used for configured debian package mirrors.  By  default,
           this  is  set  to  main.  Remember  to  check  the licenses of each
           packages  with  respect  to  their   redistributability   in   your
           juristiction when enabling contrib or non-free with this mechanism.

       --security true|false
           defines if the security  repositories  specified  in  the  security
           mirror options should be used or not.

       --source true|false
           defines  if a corresponding source image to the binary image should
           be build. By default this is  false  because  most  people  do  not
           require  this  and  would  require  to  download quite a few source
           packages. However, once you start distributing your live image, you
           should make sure you build it with a source image alongside.

       -s|--source-images iso|net|tar|usb-hdd
           defines the image type for the source image. Default is tar.

       --symlinks true|false
           defines  if  the  symlink hack should be true or false. The symlink
           hack converts all absolute symlinks to relative  ones.  By  default
           this is false and in general there is no need or gain to enable it.
           If you are in a special situation  that  requires  this,  you  will
           know.

       --syslinux-splash FILE
           defines the file of the syslinux splash graphic that should be used
           instead of the default one.

       --syslinux-timeout SECONDS
           defines the timeout the syslinux bootloader should wait  for  input
           from  the  user at the bootprompt prior booting the default kernel.
           This defaults to 0 which means it will wait forever.

       --syslinux-menu true|false
           defines if syslinux should be make use of the vgamenu  capabilities
           or not.

       --sysvinit true|false
           defines  if the sysvinit hack should be true or false. The sysvinit
           hack disables all non-essential services from starting up at bootup
           in  order  to reduce overall boottime. By default this is false and
           in general there you don't want to enable it.

       --tasksel aptitude|tasksel
           selects which program is used to install tasks. By default, this is
           set to tasksel.

       --tasks TASK|"TASKS"
           defines  one  or  more  package  tasks  to be installed in the live
           system. This is a quick and convenient  way  to  get  a  reasonable
           default selection of packages suitable for most users when building
           an image, but it results in quite big images. If you want  to  have
           finer  grained  package selections,  local packages lists should be
           used instead.

       --templates PATH
           sets the path to the templates that live-helper is  going  to  use,
           e.g.    for    bootloaders.    By   default,   this   is   set   to
           /usr/share/live-helper/templates/.

       --virtual-root-filesystem ext3
           defines what filesystem to format the root filesystem when building
           virtual-hdd images.

       --virtual-root-size MB
           defines  what  size  the  virtual-hdd  image  should  be. Note that
           although the default is set to 10000 (= 10GB),  it  will  not  need
           10GB  space  on  your  harddisk  as the files are created as sparse
           files.

       --exposed-root true|false
           defines whether to expose the root filesystem as read only and  not
           covered  by  the union filesystem. This has useful implications for
           certain speciality setups such as LTSP. By default, this option  is
           false.

       --username NAME
           sets  the  name  of  the  account  of  the default user in the live
           system.

       --win32-loader true|false
           defines if win32-loader should be included in the binary  image  or
           not.

ENVIRONMENT

       All   command   line   switches  can  also  be  specified  through  the
       corresponding environment  variable.  Environment  variables  are  name
       LH_FOO,  means, e.g. --apt-ftp-proxy becomes LH_APT_FTP_PROXY. However,
       this generally should not be used.

FILES

       auto/config

       /etc/default/live-helper
           An optional, global configuration file for lh config variables.  It
           is   useful   to   specify   a   few  system  wide  defaults,  like
           LH_MIRROR_BOOTSTRAP. This feature can be false  by  specifying  the
           --ignore-system-defaults option.
