adt-virt-chroot - autopkgtest virtualisation server using a chroot
adt-virt-chroot [options] =[chroot-name]
adt-virt-chroot [options] [-rgain-root-cmd] /path/to/chroot
adt-virt-chroot provides an autopkgtest virtualisation server using a chroot install (or similar).
Normally adt-virt-chroot will be invoked by adt-run.
The chroot to use must be specified. If it starts with a = character then it is taken to be a chroot name known to dchroot(8). Otherwise
it must start with a / and will be taken to an absolute path.
Specifies that adt-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 com-
mand; other shell (or other) metacharacters in gain-root-cmd are not interpreted or modified by adt-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, adt-virt-chroot must be started as
-d | --debug
Enables debugging output. Probably not hugely interesting.
INPUT, OUTPUT AND EXIT STATUS
The behaviour of adt-virt-chroot is as described by the AutomatedTesting virtualisation regime specification.
