NAME

       pacorc - configuration file for paco

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/pacorc

DESCRIPTION

       pacorc  is  the  system-wide configuration file for paco(8), the source
       code package organizer.

SYNTAX

       The file consists of comments and  key-value  pairs.  Comments  are  on
       separate  lines  that start with a # symbol. The key-value pairs are on
       the form:
              key=value
       where key contains no whitespace and no equal signs.
       value will be all of the text after  the  equal  sign  until  (but  not
       including) the ending newline.
       Occurences  of  $HOME and ${HOME} in value are expanded to the value of
       the environment variable HOME.

OPTIONS

       The following options can be set. The equivalent command  line  options
       (if any), are listed in brackets:

       LOGDIR [-L|--logdir]
              Base paco logs directory. Default is '/var/log/paco'.

       MAX_DB_AGE
              Maximmum  database  age  (maximmum number of days since the last
              update of the whole database). When this limit is  reached  paco
              prints a warning message.  If set to zero, the database is never
              considered too old. Default is 7.

       INCLUDE [-I|--include]
              Colon-separated  list  of  paths  to  scan  when   logging   the
              installation of a package. Default is '/'.
              Shell  wildcards  are  allowed  in  the paths. See PATH MATCHING
              below for more details.

       EXCLUDE [-E|--exclude]
              Colon-separated  list  of  paths  to  skip  when   logging   the
              installation       of       a      package.      Default      is
              '/dev:/tmp:/usr/src:/media:/selinux:/sys:/usr/share/info/dir'.
              Shell wildcards are allowed in  the  paths.  See  PATH  MATCHING
              below for more details.

       BLOCK_SIZE
              File sizes in the logs are rounded up to the nearest multiple of
              this value. This should be set to the block  size  of  the  file
              system.  For  most  systems  this  is 4096. If set to zero, paco
              retrieves the block size of the file system for each file, which
              is the most accurate but time consuming choice. Default is 0.
              Note:  This  is  not  the same as the command line option -b (or
              --block-size).

       APPARENT_SIZE
              Like BLOCK_SIZE=1.

       LOG_IGNORE_ERRORS [--ignore-errors]
              Setting this variable to 1 makes paco log packages even  if  the
              install  command  fails.  This  allows  for  logging  uncomplete
              installations, or clean the  filesystem  after  an  installation
              failure. Default is 0.

       LOG_IGNORE_SHARED [--ignore-shared]
              Setting  this  variable  to  1 makes paco skip shared files when
              logging packages.  Default is 0.

       CASE_SENSITIVE
              Setting this variable to 1 makes  paco  behave  case-sensitively
              when  matching  the  package  names  given  by  the command line
              against the logged packages. Default is 0.

PATH MATCHING

       Variables INCLUDE and EXCLUDE accept a colon-separated list  of  paths,
       each  of which may contain shell-like wildcards (*, ? and [..]).  Files
       are matched against each of those paths, following the standard  shell-
       like expansion, but with the following exception: If a path in the list
       does not contain any wildcard, and it is a directory,  it  matches  any
       file within that directory.

ENVIRONMENT

       Paco honours the following environment variable:

       PACO_DEBUG
              If  set  to  "yes",  paco  produces debugging messages, like the
              command line option '-vv'.
