PKG_INSTALL.CONF(5)       NetBSD File Formats Manual       PKG_INSTALL.CONF(5)

NAME
     pkg_install.conf -- configuration file for package installation tools

DESCRIPTION
     The file pkg_install.conf contains system defaults for the package
     installation tools as a list of variable-value pairs.  Each line has the
     format VARIABLE=VALUE.  If the value consists of more than one line, each
     line is prefixed with VARIABLE=.

     The current value of a variable can be checked by running
           pkg_admin config-var VARIABLE

     The following variables are supported:

     ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES
             List of licenses packages are allowed to carry.  License names
             are case-sensitive.

     ACTIVE_FTP
             Force the use of active FTP.

     CERTIFICATE_ANCHOR_PKGS
             Path to the file containing the certificates used for validating
             binary packages.  A package is trusted when a certificate chain
             ends in one of the certificates contained in this file.  The cer-
             tificates must be PEM-encoded.

     CERTIFICATE_ANCHOR_PKGVULN
             Analogous to CERTIFICATE_ANCHOR_PKGS.  The pkg-vulnerabilities is
             trusted when a certificate chain ends in one of the certificates
             contained in this file.

     CERTIFICATE_CHAIN
             Path to a file containing additional certificates that can be
             used for completing certificate chains when validating binary
             packages or pkg-vulnerabilities files.

     CHECK_VULNERABILITIES
             Check for vulnerabilities when installing packages.  Supported
             values are:

             never          No check is performed.

             always         Passing the vulnerability check is required.  A
                            missing pkg-vulnerabilities file is considered an
                            error.

             interactive    The user is always asked to confirm installation
                            of vulnerable packages.

     DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES
             List of common Free and Open Source licenses packages are allowed
             to carry.  The default value contains all OSI approved licenses
             in pkgsrc on the date pkg_install was released.  License names
             are case-sensitive.

     GPG     Path to gpg(1), which can be used to verify the signature in the
             pkg-vulnerabilities file when running
                   pkg_admin check-pkg-vulnerabilities -s
             or
                   pkg_admin fetch-pkg-vulnerabilities -s
             It can also be used to verify and sign binary packages.

     GPG_KEYRING_PKGVULN
             Non-default keyring to use for verifying GPG signatures of
             pkg-vulnerabilities.

     GPG_KEYRING_SIGN
             Non-default keyring to use for signing packages with GPG.

     GPG_KEYRING_VERIFY
             Non-default keyring to use for verifying GPG signature of pack-
             ages.

     GPG_SIGN_AS
             User-id to use for signing packages.

     IGNORE_PROXY
             Use direct connections and ignore FTP_PROXY and HTTP_PROXY.

     IGNORE_URL
             One line per advisory which should be ignored when running
                   pkg_admin audit
             The URL from the pkg-vulnerabilities file should be used as
             value.

     PKG_PATH
             Search path as used by pkg_add.  Overridden by the environment
             variable PKG_PATH.

     PKGVULNDIR
             Directory name in which the pkg-vulnerabilities file resides.
             Default is ${PKG_DBDIR}.

     PKGVULNURL
             URL which is used for updating the local pkg-vulnerabilities file
             when running
                   pkg_admin fetch-pkg-vulnerabilities
             The default is
             ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/packages/vulns/pkg-vulnerabilities.gz
             Note: Usually, only the compression type should be changed.  Cur-
             rently supported are uncompressed files and files compressed by
             bzip2(1) (.bz2) or gzip(1) (.gz).

     VERBOSE_NETIO
             Log details of network IO to stderr.

     VERIFIED_INSTALLATION
             Set trust level used when installation.  Supported values are:

             never          No signature checks are performed.

             always         A valid signature is required.  If the binary
                            package can not be verified, the installation is
                            terminated

             trusted        A valid signature is required.  If the binary
                            package can not be verified, the user is asked
                            interactively.

             interactive    The user is always asked interactively when
                            installing a package.
