auto configuration of packages
i'm trying to install/configure a lot of debian boxes.
i'm working on autoinstall and i think i'll be able
to make it work.
autoinstall provide autoinst-read-debconf,
which reads all the answer i answered
to debconf once, and is able to give
thoses answers again to another autoinstall config.
However, there will be always stuff
that debconf can't do.
say, if i want
- my ssh servers to run on another port,
- a specific syslog.conf
- some rewrite of /etc/passwd
i currently don't know any way of doing it easily beside manually.
i thought about doing it in a script. (which i'll
execute on every machine.)
later including this script in a postconfig of a dummy package,
the sole purpose of this package would be to postconfigure
i tought about doing a "bastille" personalized perl script.
what are your experiences ?
what do you suggest ?
what would be the best way to do it ?
