NAME

cdebootstrap - Bootstrap a Debian system

SYNOPSIS

cdebootstrap [ OPTION]... [ORIGIN/]CODENAME TARGET [MIRROR]

DESCRIPTION

cdebootstrap builds a basic Debian system of CODENAME (e.g. jessie, stretch, sid) from ORIGIN (e.g Debian, Ubuntu) into TARGET using the source specified in MIRROR. It supports http://, ftp://, file:// and ssh:// URL and defaults to http://ftp.debian.org/debian. The ssh:// scheme uses cat on the remote host to access the files. You have to setup a master connection and configure ssh to use it or use a key for authentication. No user interaction is possible. The complete log is saved as /var/log/bootstrap.log in the new system.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
--allow-unauthenticated
Ignore if packages can't be authenticated. This ignores the unavailability of Release.gpg, missing keyrings, broken signatures and missing gpgv executable.

Set the config directory.
--debug
Enable debug output.
-d, --download-only

Install extra packages.
-q, --quiet
