SBUILD-DEBIAN-DEVELOPER-SETUP(1) Debian sbuild SBUILD-DEBIAN-DEVELOPER-SETUP(1)

NAME

sbuild-debian-developer-setup - set up sbuild so that packages for Debian unstable can be built

SYNOPSIS

sbuild-debian-developer-setup [-h|--help] [--distribution= distribution] [--suite=suite]

DESCRIPTION

sbuild-debian-developer-setup is a convenience script to set up an sbuild environment for Debian Developers.
 
When run, it adds the current user to the sbuild group, creates an schroot for building packages for Debian unstable, and creates a cronjob which updates said schroot daily.
 
The script assumes you are on an un-metered internet connection (daily schroot updates might be costly otherwise).

OPTIONS

-h, --help
Display this manual.
-V, --version
Print version information.
--distribution=distribution
Set up an sbuild chroot for distribution. Defaults to "debian".
--suite=suite
Set up an sbuild chroot for suite. Defaults to "unstable".

EXAMPLES

To set up sbuild and build the hello world Debian package, use:
% sudo sbuild-debian-developer-setup
 
% newgrp sbuild↵
 
% sbuild -d unstable hello↵
