general.conf

###PALUDISENVIRONMENTONLY###

The general.conf file can be used to control general settings. It is a standard key=value configuration file, and may optionally be in bash format.

world
The location of the world file (e.g. world=${root}/var/db/paludis/repositories/installed/world).
reduced_username
If set, Paludis will use this username rather than paludisbuild when a reduced privilege user is required.
distribution
If set, overrides the distribution used when distribution-specific defaults are used.

The following keys are predefined. They should not be modified.

root
The filesystem root. Relevant if specpath.conf is in use. Using this variable can create a configuration system that works both inside and outside of a chroot (e.g. world = ${root}/var/db/pkg/world).
