       schroot-script-config - schroot chroot setup script configuration


       schroot  uses  scripts  to set up and then clean up the chroot environment.  These scripts
       may be customised using the script-config  key  in  /etc/schroot/schroot.conf.   This  key
       specifies  a  file  which  the setup scripts will source when they are run.  The file is a
       Bourne shell script, and in consequence may contain any valid shell code, in  addition  to
       simple  variable  assignments.   This  will, for example, allow behaviour to be customised
       according to the specific chroot type or name.

       This file is deprecated, but is still used if present; it will be obsoleted and removed in
       a future release.  All the settings in this file are now settable using configuration keys
       in schroot.conf, as detailed below.  Existing configuration  should  be  modified  to  use
       these keys in place of this file.


       The environment is the same as for all setup scripts, described in schroot-setup(5).


       The  following  variables  may  be set to configure setup script behaviour.  Note that new
       variables may be added in future releases.  Third-party extensions to  schroot  which  add
       their  own  setup  scripts  may  add  additional  variables which are not documented here;
       consult the extension documentation for further details.

              A file containing a list of files to copy into the chroot (one file per line).  The
              file  will  have  the  same absolute location inside the chroot.  Note that this is
              settable using the setup.copyfiles key.

              The filesystem table file to be used to mount filesystems within the  chroot.   The
              format  of  this  file  is the same as for /etc/fstab, documented in fstab(5).  The
              only difference is that the mountpoint path  fs_dir  is  relative  to  the  chroot,
              rather  than the root.  Note that this is settable using the setup.fstab key.  Also
              note that mountpoints are  canonicalised  on  the  host,  which  will  ensure  that
              absolute  symlinks  point  inside the chroot, but complex paths containing multiple
              symlinks may be resolved incorrectly; it is advised to not use nested  symlinks  as

              A file listing the system databases to copy into the chroot.  The default databases
              are ‘passwd’, ‘shadow’, ‘group’, ‘services’, ‘protocols’, ‘networks’, and  ‘hosts’.
              ‘gshadow’  is  not yet copied by default, due to not being supported by all but the
              most recent version of the GNU C library.  The databases are copied using getent(1)
              so  all  database  sources  listed  in  /etc/nsswitch.conf  will  be  used for each
              database.  Note that this is settable using the setup.nssdatabases key.
