Daemon Config Options

The config file /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf allows to the administrator to change system daemon options. In normal use this file does not have to be changed, but it may be useful to people debugging the daemon or developing backends.

The options are:


This logs all transactions to /var/log/PackageKit so old daemon debugging output can be observed.


This is the time that the daemon waits when idle before shutting down. A smaller number will result in slower response times when running many transactions in a small amount of time. A longer timeout will lock the underlying packaging backend for longer, although the daemon will start and stop less often.


Syslog is used to audit and log actions wherever its available.


The default backend that the daemon should use. The default is set at compile time to the --default-backend= configure setting.
