NAME

       autopkgtest-schroot - autopkgtest virtualisation server using a schroot

SYNOPSIS

       autopkgtest [...] -- schroot [options] schroot-name

DESCRIPTION

       autopkgtest-schroot  provides  an  autopkgtest  virtualisation  server  using  a  schroot.
       Normally autopkgtest-schroot will be invoked by autopkgtest.

       The schroot name to use must be specified.  Only  use  this  with  schroots  that  provide
       temporary  sessions,  i.  e. with type=file or type=directory and a configured union-type.
       autopkgtest-schroot will refuse to work with a static "directory" type schroot.

       You can use mk-sbuild(1) to conveniently create schroots.

PERMISSIONS

       If you can access the schroot as  your  user  (according  to  the  schroot's  users/groups
       configuration),  you  should  run  autopkgtest-schroot  (and autopkgtest itself) as normal
       user, too.

       autopkgtest-schroot reads the schroot configuration (root-users/root-groups) to  determine
       whether  it  can  enter  the  schroot  as  root  user;  if so, it sets the root-on-testbed
       capability and you can run tests which require building or running as root. If  your  user
       is not allowed to do that, you need to run autopkgtest as root instead.

OPTIONS

       -s ID | --session-id=ID
              Use  a  custom  schroot  session  ID.  This allows the user to easily identify hung
              sessions in schroot --list --all-sessions.

       -d | --debug
              Enables debugging output.

INPUT, OUTPUT AND EXIT STATUS

       The  behaviour  of  autopkgtest-schroot  is   as   described   by   the   AutomatedTesting
       virtualisation regime specification.
