       cvsd-buildroot - create a chrooted directory structure for use in cvsd.


       cvsd-buildroot DIRECTORY


       cvsd-buildroot  creates  and  populates  a directory that can be used as a chroot jail for
       running cvsd (see cvsd(8) ) in.

       This script should be run as the root user since the creation of devices and the  changing
       of ownership and permissions require this.

       The script gives warnings about files that it's not expecting.

       cvsd-buildroot creates the following directory structure:

       /bin   This directory is populated with the cvs binary that is found on the system.

       /lib   This  directory  is  populated with all the libraries that are required for running
              programs in the /bin directory as well as some predefined required  libraries  that
              are present on the system.

       /dev   Here null and zero devices are created.

       /etc   In this directory a passwd file is created that is used for matching user id's with
              usernames. The root and cvsd user are added to this file if they're not there  yet.
              The  passwd  file is checked for consistency with the system /etc/passwd to prevent
              mistakes.  The  passwd  file  is  also  populated  with  users  referenced  in  the
              repository  directories.   Note that no password data from /etc/passwd or any other
              file is stored in the generated passwd file, all password entries are set to ‘x’.

       /usr   Here symbolic links are placed to /bin and /lib for some common library and  binary
              directories  found  on  the  system.  This is done for systems that have hard-coded
              paths for libraries.

       /libexec and /usr/libexec
              Symbolic links for these directories are created if they are present on the system.

       /tmp   This directory is cleaned out on systems that have tmpreaper.

       After the directories are created  and  populated  ownership  and  rights  are  set  to  a
       reasonable value (root:root,umask=022).


       cvsd-buildroot  takes  one  argument,  namely a directory in which the chroot jail will be
       created. The directory should be specified with an absolute path.


       Creating a chroot environment is a terribly non-portable thing to do and therefore you may
       experience problems with missing libraries and system files.  For more information see the
       FAQ and the README.  If you have to install libraries or perform actions  not  covered  by
       cvsd-buildroot please report your findings to <>.

       Rerunning  cvsd-buildroot  after  you  have  created  your repository is advised since the
       repositories are checked for references to userid's and lockfile directories.
