live-build - Live System Build Components


lb binary-includes [--verbose] lb binary-includes [--help] lb binary-includes [--version]


live-build contains the components to build a live system from a con‐ figuration directory. The lb binary-includes command copies include files into the binary stage.


lb binary-includes copies any include files found in the con‐ fig/includes and config/includes.binary directories within the configu‐ ration directory. Include files do not require to have a specific owner nor specific per‐ missions. The files are set to be owned by root by lb binary-includes automatically when they are copied, original permissions of the files are preserved. Specific owners can be set with a corresponding hook file, see lb-binary-hooks(1) for more information about hooks. Include files in the config/includes directory are copied first, include files in the config/includes.binary directory are copied sec‐ ond. Files present in the binary and either of the include directories are silently overwritten, the later file replaces the earlier.


--verbose sets verbose option (default: False). -h, --help show help message and exit. --version show program's version number and exit.


config/includes: generic include files. config/includes.binary: include files specific for the binary stage. binary: directory in which the include files are copied into.
