Cool, will try that later. Thanks!
Another thing comes to my mind that I wanted to do some time ago, but I
don't remember the correct example back then - maybe the FAI config is a
For some services, there is not just one file, but a directory with
multiple files in it which belong together as configuration.
Now, if I have for example two different fai configs, say one for a
sarge install server, one for an ubuntu install server, but I want them
to reside on the installed machine in /etc/fai, assuming I never want an
install server that does them both together (which I want finally), I
have to make a setup like this in files:
Which is somehow ugly (I often don't like the idea anyway of having
these files named as classes, but when i thought about having another
intermediate directory with the class name and put the file in it, I
didn't like that also, so it seems the way it is is the one that sucks
I'd like to able to just manage a whole
directory of files belonging together to one useful configuration
in a single directory like:
Would it be a bad idea if I'd add an option to fcopy that could handle
this? Hmm, I guess it could work and be nice, but it might interfere
with the "-r" when I use it as Henning does...
P.S: I know about ftar, but I wanna do version control - if I put
*.tar's in the files dir, there's no easy way to get diff's from the
text files inside.
