xt-customize-image - Customize a freshly installed copy of GNU/Linux
--help Show this scripts help information.
--manual Read this scripts manual.
--version Show the version number and exit.
--verbose Be verbose in our execution.
--location The location of the new installation
--dist The name of the distribution which has been installed.
All other options from xen-create-image, such as the new IP address(es)
to give to the new instance, will be passed as environmental variables.
This script is invoked by xen-create-image after it has created a
fresh installation of Linux within a temporary location.
This script will be invoked with a full copy of the arguments from
xen-create-image in its environment, along with several command line
The command line arguments which are mandatory are:
--location - The temporary installation root of the new install
--dist - The distribution which has been installed.
The distribution name is used to locate an appropriate collection
of scripts, or hooks, to execute to do the actual customisation.
The hooks will each be executed with a single parameter which is
the directory path to the new instance. This argument is taken from
the --location option.
For the distribution named 'foo' the scripts will be loaded and
executed from '/usr/share/xen-tools/foo.d'. Each executable will
be loaded and executed in sorted order.
The systems administrator can optionally provide site-specific
revisions of those same hooks by placing them in the directory
'/etc/xen-tools/hooks.d/' in which case a script with the same name
as the one in the 'foo.d' directory above will take precedence. In
this way certain hooks can be prevented from running, expanded with
site-specific features which won't get overwritten on upgrades, or
patched with critical bug-fixes before the upstream OS distribution
