rconfig ritten

Matt Dillon has written a remote configuration utility called ‘rconfig‘, which sounds similar in theme to utilities like Kickstart or the whatchamacallit Sun uses. His description:

‘It allows a CD user to scan the network for configuration servers, download a configuration script based on a tag name, and execute that script all in one simple command. Running the rconfig server is just as easy… you basically just run the server -a -s and put your scripts in /usr/local/etc/rconfig/.sh and you are done.’

He’s added share/examples/rconfig auto.sh as a sample rconfig script. It will completely remove and reinstall DragonFly.

    ‘ritten’ is on purpose, to match ‘rconfig’ – it’s spelling humor, yay!

    Heh. Don’t mind me. I can be a little slow!
