MACHINE-INFO(5)                            machine-info                           MACHINE-INFO(5)

       machine-info - Local machine information file


       The /etc/machine-info file contains machine metadata.

       The basic file format of machine-info is a newline-separated list of environment-like
       shell-compatible variable assignments. It is possible to source the configuration from
       shell scripts, however, beyond mere variable assignments no shell features are supported,
       allowing applications to read the file without implementing a shell compatible execution

       /etc/machine-info contains metadata about the machine that is set by the user or

       Depending on the operating system other configuration files might be checked for machine
       information as well, however only as fallback.

       You may use hostnamectl(1) to change the settings of this file from the command line.

       The following machine metadata parameters may be set using /etc/machine-info:

           A pretty human-readable UTF-8 machine identifier string. This should contain a name
           like "Lennart's Laptop" which is useful to present to the user and does not suffer by
           the syntax limitations of internet domain names. If possible, the internet hostname as
           configured in /etc/hostname should be kept similar to this one. Example: if this value
           is "Lennart's Computer" an Internet hostname of "lennarts-computer" might be a good
           choice. If this parameter is not set, an application should fall back to the Internet
           host name for presentation purposes.

           An icon identifying this machine according to the XDG Icon Naming Specification[1]. If
           this parameter is not set, an application should fall back to "computer" or a similar
           icon name.

           The chassis type. Currently, the following chassis types are defined: "desktop",
           "laptop", "server", "tablet", "handset", "watch", as well as the special chassis types
           "vm" and "container" for virtualized systems that lack an immediate physical chassis.
           Note that many systems allow detection of the chassis type automatically (based on
           firmware information or suchlike). This setting (if set) shall take precedence over
           automatically detected information and is useful to override misdetected configuration
           or to manually configure the chassis type where automatic detection is not available.
