fai-deps - class dependencies for FAI
fai-deps [-h] [--man] [-d]
implements dependencies between fai classes.
fai-deps uses files $FAI/class/*.deps to sort the classes in $LOGDIR/FAI_CLASSES
and define additional ones. While doing so, it retains the original order as
much as possible.
*.deps files may contain class names, separated by whitespace. Comments ( after
# or ; ) are ignored
e.g. you have a class WORDPRESS that depends on the classes VHOST and POSTGRES .
VHOST again may depend on WEBSERVER. So if you want to install the blogging
software wordpress, you add a file
that contains the words
and a file
that contains the word
The order often is important, so this script is taking care of it. The order of
the example above would be:
WEBSERVER VHOST POSTGRES WORDPRESS
That way, in $FAI/scripts/ first the webserver would be configured, then the
It removes double entries from FAI_CLASSES and handles circular dependencies.
I do not recommend using circular dependencies, but if you accidentally define
them, they will not break your neck. But you'll get a warning ...
One non-standard perl module is required:
Graph::Directed; On debian install libgraph-perl
The following environment variables are used:
$LOGDIR : path to fai temporary files
$FAI : path to fai config space
