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
The environment is the same as for all setup scripts, described in
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 database.
