autopkgtest-virt-chroot - autopkgtest virtualisation server using a chroot
autopkgtest [...] -- chroot
provides an autopkgtest virtualisation server
using a chroot install (or similar).
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.
The behaviour of autopkgtest-virt-chroot
is as described by the
AutomatedTesting virtualisation regime specification.
