boom.conf ā€” boom configuration file

Synopsis

/boot/boom/boom.conf

Description

boom.conf is loaded during the initialisation of boom and contains configuration keys affecting boom's global behaviour and the setting of boom's legacy configuration support.

The file is structured in INI format: section headers appear in square brackets and configuration values appear as key-value pairs with one pair per line.

Sections

global

The global section contains the boot_path and boom_path keys that may be used to override the location of the /boot mount point and /boot/boom configuration directory respectively.

legacy

The legacy section contains settings to enable and configure support for non-BLS boot loader configuration formats.

To enable legacy boot loader support set the enable key to yes or true and set the format key to the required format (currently only grub syntax is supported).

If the value of the sync key is true the legacy configuration will be automatically written whenever entries are added, removed, or modified.
