piuparts_slave_run - start up piuparts-slave instance(s) in screen
runs piuparts-slave instance(s) in screen
tests which test whether Debian packages handle
installation, upgrading, and removal correctly.
By default, piuparts_slave_run
will start the number of slaves specified
by the slave-count
parameter in the piuparts.conf file. If
is not defined, a single slave will be started. If a single
argument is supplied to piuparts_slave_run
, consisting of a
space-separated list of numbers between 1 and slave-count
, only those
slaves will be started.
There are no options to this command currently. Note however that this
interface is under development
and may change.
Running piuparts in master-slave mode requires configuration in
should be able to run slaves in different ways: 1.
all, in a new screen (only this is implemented at the moment) 2. a specific
one, in a specified screen slot in a (running) screen 3. append one to a
(running) screen using a "random" slot 4. start slave in the current
directory in the current shell in foreground.
