autopkgtest-virt-chroot - autopkgtest virtualisation server using a chroot
autopkgtest [...] -- chroot [options] [-rgain-root-cmd] /path/to/chroot
autopkgtest-virt-chroot provides an autopkgtest virtualisation server using a chroot install (or similar).
Normally autopkgtest-virt-chroot will be invoked by autopkgtest.
The chroot directory to use must be specified.
- --gain-root|-r gain-root-cmd
- Specifies that autopkgtest-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 autopkgtest-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, autopkgtest-virt-chroot must be started as root.
- -d | --debug
- Enables debugging output. Probably not hugely interesting.
