adt-virt-chroot - autopkgtest virtualisation server using a chroot
] [ -rgain-root-cmd
provides an autopkgtest virtualisation server using a
chroot install (or similar).
will be invoked by adt-run
The chroot to use must be specified. If it starts with a =
it is taken to be a chroot name known to dchroot
(8). Otherwise it must
start with a /
and will be taken to an absolute path.
- --gain-root|-r gain-root-cmd
- Specifies that adt-virt-chroot can become root (on
the host) by prefixing its commands with gain-root-cmd. The command
may consist of several words separated by whitespace, in which case words
other than the first are supplied as additional arguments to the command;
other shell (or other) metacharacters in gain-root-cmd are not
interpreted or modified by adt-virt-chroot. The actual command to
be run as root, and its arguments, are supplied as additional (separate)
arguments to gain-root-cmd.
Root privilege is needed, to successfully run chroot(8), if the
chroot to use is specified as an absolute path. The default is not to take
any special action when root will be needed, in which case for an absolute
path chroot, adt-virt-chroot must be started as root.
- -d | --debug
- Enables debugging output. Probably not hugely interesting.
INPUT, OUTPUT AND EXIT STATUS¶
The behaviour of adt-virt-chroot
is as described by the AutomatedTesting
