Projects / LinCS


LinCS (Linux Configuration System) is a configuration tool aiming to offer a uniform way for applications, the OS itself, and machine clusters to store/retrieve their configuration information. Thus, it will completely replace the standard configuration files, such as the ones stored in /etc. It follows on the road opened by other configuration tools such as gconf, but is novel in that it addresses the area of system configuration. It offers a transparent way for "older" applications that use configuration files to live on a LinCS-configured OS. Its design is modular and extensible. A separate component is the text-based UI editor that allows users to manage their configuration values and admins to configure the machine(s).
