buildd.conf - configuration file for buildd

BUILDD.CONF(5) Debian sbuild BUILDD.CONF(5)

NAME

buildd.conf - configuration file for buildd

DESCRIPTION

buildd.conf is a Perl script which is sourced by buildd to permit configuration. It is run in a sandbox and restricted to setting a small number of variables, detailed below, which may be set to configure the behaviour of buildd. Each variable has an internal name, shown in all caps, and a perl variable showing the default setting. Note that the internal name is not accessible within buildd.conf; only the variable may be assigned. Also note that some of the defaults are set to be unique for each build, and so some of the defaults shown here are unique to the user and system used to build sbuild, and will be different for your system.
While buildd permits many aspects of its behaviour to be configured, this should not normally be required. The defaults should be adequate for most uses, and should only be changed if you are doing something more advanced, or have specialist requirements.

CONFIGURATION

Build environment

PATH
STRING type. PATH to set when running dpkg-buildpackage.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--use-snapshot
 
Default:
$path = '/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games';
 

Build options

BUILD_ARCH
STRING type. Build architecture (Arch we are building on).
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--arch
 
--build
 
build_arch = ...;
 
BUILD_PROFILES
STRING type. Build profiles. Separated by spaces.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--profiles
 
Default:
$build_profiles = '';
 
DISTRIBUTION
STRING type. Default distribution. By default, no distribution is defined, and the user must specify it with the -d option. However, a default may be configured here if desired. Users must take care not to upload to the wrong distribution when this option is set, for example experimental packages will be built for upload to unstable when this is not what is required.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
-d
 
--dist
 
Default:
$distribution = undef;
 
DISTRIBUTIONS
ARRAY:HASH:SCALAR type. List of distributions that buildd should take packages from
Example:
$distributions = [
 
{
 
# name of the suite to build (also used to query wanna-build)
 
dist_name => ["unstable", "testing"],
 
 
# architecture to be built (will be passed to sbuild and can be
 
# used to compute wanna_build_db_name)
 
built_architecture => undef,
 
 
# host on which wanna-build is run
 
wanna_build_ssh_host => "buildd.debian.org",
 
 
# user as who we are going to connect to the host running wanna-build
 
wanna_build_ssh_user => "buildd_arch",
 
 
# SSH control socket path for ssh -S option
 
wanna_build_ssh_socket => "",
 
 
# Additional SSH options used when connecting
 
wanna_build_ssh_options => [],
 
 
# database used for wanna-build
 
wanna_build_db_name => "arch/build-db",
 
 
# Username to use for wanna-build.
 
wanna_build_db_user => $Buildd::username,
 
 
# Local queue directory where binaries are stored before uploaded
 
# by dupload. You need to configure this directory in
 
# @upload_queues to get packages uploaded from there.
 
dupload_local_queue_dir => "upload",
 
 
# list of packages which shouldn't be picked up by buildd
 
no_auto_build => [],
 
 
# list of packages which should only be taken if there absolutely
 
# nothing else to do (probably packages included in no_auto_build
 
# because they take too long)
 
weak_no_auto_build => [],
 
 
# regex used to filter out unwanted packages:
 
#no_build_regex => "^(contrib/|non-free/)?non-US/",
 
 
# regex used to filter packages to build:
 
#build_regex => "",
 
 
# mail addr of buildd admin handling packages from this distribution
 
logs_mailed_to => $admin_mail,
 
 
# schroot name (or alias) of the chrooted environment to use for
 
# building (will be passed to sbuild). sbuild's default is
 
# the first of $distribution-$arch-sbuild, $distribution-sbuild,
 
# $distribution-$arch and $distribution.

Core options

BUILD_USER
STRING type. Username used for running dpkg-buildpackage. By default the user running sbuild is used within the chroot as well but that might allow a process from within the chroot to break out of the chroot by attaching to a process running outside the chroot with eg. gdb and then becoming root inside the chroot through schroot and thus be able to leave the chroot.
