toolbox.conf - Man Page

Toolbox configuration file

Description

Persistently overrides the default behaviour of toolbox(1). The syntax is TOML and the names of the options match their command line counterparts. Currently, the only supported section is general.

Options

distro = "DISTRO"

Create a toolbox container for a different operating system DISTRO than the host. Cannot be used with image.

image = "NAME"

Change the NAME of the image used to create the toolbox container. This is useful for creating containers from custom-built images. Cannot be used with distro and release.

If NAME does not contain a registry, the local image storage will be consulted, and if it's not present there then it will be pulled from a suitable remote registry.

release = "RELEASE"

Create a toolbox container for a different operating system RELEASE than the host. Cannot be used with image.

Files

The following locations are looked up in increasing order of priority:

/etc/containers/toolbox.conf

This is meant to be provided by the operating system distributor or the system administrator, and affects all users on the host.

Fields specified here can be overridden by any of the files below.

$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/containers/toolbox.conf

This is meant for user-specific changes. Fields specified here override any of the files above.
