Linux 2.6 - man page for ucf.conf (linux section 5)

UCF.CONF(5)			     Debian GNU/Linux manual			      UCF.CONF(5)

       ucf.conf - site-wide configuration file for ucf


       The  file  /etc/ucf.conf  is  actually  a Bourne Shell snippet included during the package
       build process, and hence you may put any shell directive in that file (just make very sure
       you know what you are doing).

       All  the variables have reasonable default values, and some may be overridden on a per run
       or a per individual basis by using environment variables, and all  configurable	variables
       can be overridden by options to the scripts themselves.

       The value of a variable can be set so:

       a) Defaults  exist  in  the  rules  file. These are the values used if no customization is

       b) Some variables can be set in the config file /etc/ucf.conf.  These values override  the

       c) Some	variables can also be set by setting a corresponding environment variable.  These
	  values override the config file and the defaults.

       d) Using script command line options. All  configurable	variables  may	be  set  by  this
	  method, and will override the other methods above.

Configuration File options
       At the moment, the user modifiable variables supported are:

       DEBUG		 Debugging  information: The default value is 0 (no debugging information
			 is printed). To enable debugging output, set the value to 1.

       VERBOSE		 Verbosity: The default value is 0 (quiet). To change the default  behav-
			 ior, set the value to 1.

			 Force	the  installed	file  to be retained. The default is to have this
			 variable unset, which makes the script ask in case of doubt.	This  can
			 be overridden by the environment variable UCF_FORCE_CONFFOLD

			 Force	the  installed file to be overridden. The default is to have this
			 variable unset, which makes the script ask in case of doubt.	This  can
			 be overridden by the environment variable UCF_FORCE_CONFFNEW

       conf_source_dir	 This is the directory where the historical md5sums for a file are looked
			 for.  Specifically, the historical md5sums are looked for in either  the
			 file ${filename}.md5sum, or the subdirectory ${filename}.md5sum.d/

			 Force	the  historical  md5sums  to  be read from this file, rather than
			 defaulting to living in the source directory.	Setting this option over-
			 rides settings in the environment variable UCF_OLD_MDSUM_FILE

       System-wide defaults are placed in /etc/ucf.conf,


       There are no bugs.  Any resemblance thereof is delirium. Really.

       This  manual  page  was	written by Manoj Srivastava <srivasta@debian.org>, for the Debian
       GNU/Linux system.
