The following variables can be set in a configuration file. The configuration file is a normal shell file and is sourced to get the configuration variables. The file /etc/vservers/newvserver-vars is always sourced so this configuration file only override that file. # Default VROOTDIR VROOTDIR="/etc/vservers/.defaults/vdirbase" Packages to install in addition to the base defaults MUST INCLUDE ALL DEPENDENCIES (seperated by "," commas) INSTALL_PACKAGES="package1,package2" Packages installed from within the vserver after it has been setup (seperated by "," commas) EXTRA_PACKAGES="package1,package2" Packages to remove from the base defaults (seperated by "," commas) REMOVE_PACKAGES="package1,package2" Sysvinit services relating to hardware access to remove REMOVE_LINKS="klogd hwclock.sh setserial urandom networking umountfs halt reboot" Absolute path location of a script that you want to run after the vserver installation. POST_INSTALL_SCRIPT="" Absolute path location of a script that you want to run after the vserver installation but before the previous script and outside vserver context. This can be used for example to copy /etc/apt/sources.list from host. POST_INSTALL_HOST_SCRIPT="" Architecture: overide on non-Debian host such as Redhat otherwise dpkg will detect whether we are i386/powerpc/sparc/etc ARCH="" Which Debian distribution (Warning. unstable and testing distributions change frequently so you can not expect it to work out of the box). DIST="squeeze" Local or nearest location of a Debian mirror (must include the `/debian') MIRROR="http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian" Debian-non-US mirror (must include the '/debian-non-US', only used for woody) MIRROR_NON_US="http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US" mirror for security updates MIRROR_SECURITY="http://security.debian.org" Default network interface for vservers: INTERFACE="eth0" Package caching: PKGCACHE=1 The name of a debconf database to be read by debconf's file driver. This can be used to store the answers for debconf questions during install and thus allows for unattended installation. See the debconf.conf(5) manual page for the file format. DEBCONF_FILE_DB=""
