       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.


       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.

       FSTAB  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.

              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
