       drblsrv is a program to build or maintain a DRBL server.

       dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

       -f, --force-yes
           force yes, only for Debian-like distribution. It should not be used except in very
           special situations. Using force-yes can potentially destroy your system!

       -i, --install
           install DRBL.

       -u, --uninstall
           uninstall DRBL.

       -v, --verbose
           verbose mode.

       -t [y/n], --testing [y/n]
           use packages in testing branch or not.

       -a [y/n], --unstable [y/n]
           use packages in unstable branch or not.

       -n [y/n], --netinstall [y/n]
           install the network installation program or not.

       -m [y/n], --smp-client [y/n]
           use SMP kernel for DRBL clients or not.

       -x [y/n], --set-proxy [y/n]
           set proxy or not.

       -c [y/n], --console-output [y/n]
           set console output for client or not.

       -g [y/n], --upgrade_system [y/n]
           upgrade system or not.

       -k [0|1|2], --client_archi [0|1|2]
           set the client's CPU arch, 0 for i386, 1 for i586, 2 for same level with DRBL server
           (for x86_64, use 2).

       -o [1|2], --client_kernel_from [1|2]
           choose client's kernel image from, 1 from DRBL server running kernel (if available), 2
           from ayo repository.

       -s, --skip-select-repository
           skip the question for selecting repository.

       -l [N], --language [N]
           Set the language to be shown, where N: 0: English, 1: Traditional Chinese (Big5) -

           If used, the defined path is used to access each of drbl's routine scripts.


       The following diagnostics may be issued on stderr:

       Any error messages worth to be reported in this manpage?
           If so, they should be documented here.

       drblsrv provides some return codes, that can be used in scripts:

       0      Program exited successfully.
       1      is such documentation useful? If no, erase it.


       The program is currently limited to only work with ... [some known bugs?]
