Quick Info

The Conf-Files field is used to list all the configuration files and their md5 checksums. This field is automatically created by the system if it is deamed necessary. By default the md5sums file is used for the purpose of testing the md5sum of the files contained in a package.

The format supported by wpkg is any file field format, although by default the Conf-Files field is expected to use the configuration files format which is:

  • One empty line ("short or first line")
  • The filename, a space, the md5sum of that file

The filename can include spaces in which case the whole filename must be written between double quotes. It is generally adviced to not use spaces in filenames, though.
