sbuild.conf - configuration file for sbuild

SBUILD.CONF(5) Debian sbuild SBUILD.CONF(5)

NAME

sbuild.conf - configuration file for sbuild

DESCRIPTION

sbuild.conf is a Perl script which is sourced by sbuild 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 sbuild. 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 sbuild.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 sbuild 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

LD_LIBRARY_PATH
STRING type. Library search path to use inside the chroot.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--use-snapshot
 
Default:
$ld_library_path = undef;
 
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

APPEND_TO_VERSION
STRING type. Suffix to append to version number. May be useful for derivative distributions.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--append-to-version
 
Default:
$append_to_version = undef;
 
BIN_NMU
STRING type. Binary NMU changelog entry.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--make-binNMU
 
Default:
$bin_nmu = undef;
 
BIN_NMU_CHANGELOG
STRING type. The content of a binary-only changelog entry. Leading and trailing newlines will be stripped.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--binNMU-changelog
 
Default:
$bin_nmu_changelog = undef;
 
BIN_NMU_TIMESTAMP
STRING type. Binary NMU timestamp. The timestamp is either given as n integer in Unix time or as a string in the format compatible with Debian changelog entries (i.e. as it is generated by date -R). If set to the default (undef) the date at build time is used.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--binNMU-timestamp
 
Default:
$bin_nmu_timestamp = undef;
 
BIN_NMU_VERSION
STRING type. Binary NMU version number.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--binNMU
 
--make-binNMU
 
Default:
$bin_nmu_version = undef;
 
BUILD_ARCH
STRING type. Build architecture (Arch we are building on).
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--arch
 
--build
 
build_arch = ...;
 
BUILD_ARCH_ALL
BOOL type. Build architecture: all packages by default.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--arch-all
 
--no-arch-all
 
Default:
$build_arch_all = 0;
 
BUILD_ARCH_ANY
BOOL type. Build architecture: any packages by default.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--arch-any
 
--no-arch-any
 
Default:
$build_arch_any = 1;
 
BUILD_ENV_CMND
STRING type. This command is run with the dpkg-buildpackage command line passed to it (in the chroot, if doing a chrooted build). It is used by the sparc buildd (which is sparc64) to call the wrapper script that sets the environment to sparc (32-bit). It could be used for other build environment setup scripts. Note that this is superseded by schroot's 'command-prefix' option
Default:
$build_env_cmnd = '';
 
BUILD_PATH
STRING type. By default the package is built in a path of the following format /build/packagename-XXXXXX/packagename-version/ where XXXXXX is a random ascii string. This option allows one to specify a custom path where the package is built inside the chroot. The sbuild user in the chroot must have permissions to create the path. Common writable locations are subdirectories of /tmp or /build. Using /tmp might be dangerous, because (depending on the chroot backend) the /tmp inside the chroot might be a world writable location that can be accessed by processes outside the chroot. The directory /build can only be accessed by the sbuild user and group and should be a safe location. The buildpath must be an empty directory because the last component of the path will be removed after the build is finished. Notice that depending on the chroot backend (see CHROOT_MODE), some locations inside the chroot might be bind mounts that are shared with other sbuild instances. You must avoid using these shared locations as the build path or otherwise concurrent runs of sbuild will likely fail. With the default schroot chroot backend, the directory /build is shared between multiple schroot sessions. You can change this behaviour in /etc/schroot/sbuild/fstab. The behaviour of other chroot backends will vary.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--build-path
 
Default:
$build_path = undef;
 
BUILD_PROFILES
STRING type. Build profiles. Separated by spaces.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--profiles
 
Default:
$build_profiles = '';
 
BUILD_SOURCE
BOOL type. By default, do not build a source package (binary only build). Set to 1 to force creation of a source package, but note that this is inappropriate for binary NMUs, where the option will always be disabled.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
-s
 
--source
 
--no-source
 
Default:
$build_source = 0;
 
CHECK_SPACE
BOOL type. Check free disk space prior to starting a build. sbuild requires the free space to be at least twice the size of the unpacked sources to allow a build to proceed. Can be disabled to allow building if space is very limited, but the threshold to abort a build has been exceeded despite there being sufficient space for the build to complete.
Default:
$check_space = 1;
 
CLEAN_SOURCE
BOOL type. When running sbuild from within an unpacked source tree, run the 'clean' target before generating the source package. This might require some of the build dependencies necessary for running the 'clean' target to be installed on the host machine. Only disable if you start from a clean checkout and you know what you are doing.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--clean-source
 
--no-clean-source
 
Default:
$clean_source = 1;
 
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;
 
FORCE_ORIG_SOURCE
BOOL type. By default, the -s option only includes the .orig.tar.gz when needed (i.e. when the Debian revision is 0 or 1). By setting this option to 1, the .orig.tar.gz will always be included when -s is used.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--force-orig-source
 
Default:
$force_orig_source = 0;
 
GCC_SNAPSHOT
BOOL type. Build using current GCC snapshot?
Related sbuild(1) command line options:

host_arch = ...;
 
PGP_OPTIONS
ARRAY:STRING type. Additional signing options for dpkg-buildpackage

];
 
SOURCE_ONLY_CHANGES
BOOL type. Also produce a changes file suitable for a source-only upload.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--source-only-changes
 
Default:
$source_only_changes = 0;
 
TOOLCHAIN_REGEX
ARRAY:STRING type. Regular expressions identifying toolchain packages. Note that for backward compatibility, this is also settable using the array @toolchain_regex (deprecated), rather than an array reference.
Default:
$toolchain_regex = [
 
'binutils$',
 
'dpkg-dev$',
 
'gcc-[\d.]+$',
 
'g\+\+-[\d.]+$',
 
'libstdc\+\+',

'gnumach-dev$',
 
'hurd-dev$',
 
'kfreebsd-kernel-headers$'
 
];
 

Build timeouts

INDIVIDUAL_STALLED_PKG_TIMEOUT
HASH:NUMERIC type. Some packages may exceed the general timeout (e.g. redirecting output to a file) and need a different timeout. This has is a mapping between source package name and timeout. Note that for backward compatibility, this is also settable using the hash %individual_stalled_pkg_timeout (deprecated) , rather than a hash reference.
Example:
%individual_stalled_pkg_timeout = (smalleiffel => 300,
 
jade => 300,
 
atlas => 300,
 
glibc => 1000,
 
'gcc-3.3' => 300,
 
kwave => 600);
 
Default:

Chroot options

APT_ALLOW_UNAUTHENTICATED
BOOL type. Force APT to accept unauthenticated packages. By default, unauthenticated packages are not allowed. This is to keep the build environment secure, using apt-secure(8). By setting this to 1, APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated is set to "true" when running apt-get. This is disabled by default: only enable it if you know what you are doing.
Default:
$apt_allow_unauthenticated = 0;
 
APT_CLEAN
BOOL type. APT clean. 1 to enable running "apt-get clean" at the start of each build, or 0 to disable.

LOG_EXTERNAL_COMMAND_ERROR
BOOL type. Log standard error of commands run by sbuild?
Related sbuild(1) command line options:

Default:
$log_external_command_error = 1;
 
LOG_EXTERNAL_COMMAND_OUTPUT
BOOL type. Log standard output of commands run by sbuild?

--purge-build
 
Default:
$purge_build_directory = 'always';
 
PURGE_EXTRA_PACKAGES
BOOL type. Try to remove all additional packages that are not strictly required for the build right after build dependencies were installed. This currently works best with the aspcud resolver. The apt resolver will not make as much effort to remove all unneeded packages and will keep all providers of a virtual package and all packages from any dependency alternative that happen to be installed. The aptitude and xapt resolver do not implement this feature yet. The removed packages are not yet added again after the build finished. This can have undesirable side effects like lintian not working (because there is no apt to install its dependencies) or bare chroots becoming totally unusable after apt was removed from them. Thus, this option should only be used with throw-away chroots like schroot provides them where the original state is automatically restored after each build.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--purge-extra-packages
 
Default:
$purge_extra_packages = 0;
 
PURGE_SESSION
STRING type. Purge the schroot session following a build. This is useful in conjunction with the --purge and --purge-deps options when using snapshot chroots, since by default the snapshot will be deleted. Possible values are "always" (default), "never", and "successful"

-p
 
--purge
 
--purge-session
 
Default:
$purge_session = 'always';

-b
 
--batch
 
Default:
$batch_mode = 0;
 
BUILD_DIR
STRING type. This option is deprecated. Directory for chroot symlinks and sbuild logs. Defaults to the current directory if unspecified. It is used as the location of chroot symlinks (obsolete) and for current build log symlinks and some build logs. There is no default; if unset, it defaults to the current working directory. $HOME/build is another common configuration.
Example:
$build_dir = '/home/pete/build';
 
build_dir = ...;

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.
build_user = ...;
 
CORE_DEPENDS
ARRAY:STRING type. Packages which must be installed in the chroot for all builds.

Dependency resolution

ASPCUD_CRITERIA
STRING type. Optimization criteria in extended MISC 2012 syntax passed to aspcud through apt-cudf. Optimization criteria are separated by commas, sorted by decreasing order of priority and are prefixed with a polarity (+ to maximize and - to minimize). The default criteria is '-removed,-changed,-new' which first minimizes the number of removed packages, then the number of changed packages (up or downgrades) and then the number of new packages. A common task is to minimize the number of packages from experimental. To do this you can add a criteria like '-count(solution,APT-Release:=/a=experimental/)' to the default criteria. This will then minimize the number of packages in the solution which contain the string 'a=experimental' in the 'APT-Release' field of the EDSP output created by apt. See the apt-cudf man page help on the --criteria option for more information.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--aspcud-criteria
 
Default:
$aspcud_criteria = '-removed,-changed,-new';
 
BD_UNINSTALLABLE_EXPLAINER
STRING type. Method to use for explaining build dependency installation failures. Possible value are "dose3" (default) and "apt". Set to the empty string or undef to disable running any explainer.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--bd-uninstallable-explainer
 
Default:
$bd_uninstallable_explainer = 'dose3';
 
BUILD_DEP_RESOLVER
STRING type. Build dependency resolver. The 'apt' resolver is currently the default, and recommended for most users. This resolver uses apt-get to resolve dependencies. Alternative resolvers are 'apt', 'aptitude' and 'aspcud'. The 'apt' resolver uses a built-in resolver module while the 'aptitude' resolver uses aptitude to resolve build dependencies. The aptitude resolver is similar to apt, but is useful in more complex situations, such as where multiple distributions are required, for example when building from experimental, where packages are needed from both unstable and experimental, but defaulting to unstable. If the dependency situation is too complex for either apt or aptitude to solve it, you can use the 'aspcud' resolver which (in contrast to apt and aptitude) is a real solver (in the math sense) and will thus always find a solution if a solution exists.
Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--build-dep-resolver
 
Default:

Related sbuild(1) command line options:
--extra-repository-key
 
Default:
$extra_repository_keys = [];
 
RESOLVE_ALTERNATIVES
BOOL type. Should the dependency resolver use alternatives in Build-Depends, Build-Depends-Arch and Build-Depends-Indep? By default, using 'apt' resolver, only the first alternative will be used; all other alternatives will be removed. When using the 'aptitude' resolver, it will default to using all alternatives. Note that this does not include architecture-specific alternatives, which are reduced to the build architecture prior to alternatives removal. This should be left disabled when building for unstable; it may be useful when building for experimental or backports. Set to undef to use the default, 1 to enable, or 0 to disable.
