fai-deps - class dependencies for FAI
fai-deps [-h] [--man] [-d]
implements dependencies between fai classes.
fai-deps uses files $FAI/class/*.deps to sort the classes in $LOGDIR/FAI_CLASSES and define additional ones. While doing so, it retains the original order as much as possible. *.deps files may contain class names, seperated by whitespace. Comments ( after # or ; ) are ignored e.g. you have a class WORDPRESS that depends on the classes VHOST and POSTGRES . VHOST again may depend on WEBSERVER. So if you want to install the blogging software wordpress, you add a file $FAI/class/WORDPRESS.deps that contains the words VHOST POSTGRES and a file $FAI/class/VHOST.deps that contains the word WEBSERVER The order often is important, so this script is taking care of it. The order of the example above would be: WEBSERVER VHOST POSTGRES WORDPRESS That way, in $FAI/scripts/ first the webserver would be configured, then the vhosts, ... It removes double entries from FAI_CLASSES and handles circular dependencies. I do not recommend using circular dependencies, but if you accidentally define them, they will not break your neck. But you'll get a warning ...
One non-standard perl module is required: Graph::Directed; On debian install libgraph-perl The following enviroment variables are used: $LOGDIR : path to fai temporary files $FAI : path to fai config space
