       pbuilderrc - configuration files for personal package builder


       /etc/pbuilderrc  contains  default  values used in the pbuilder program

       The file itself is sourced by a shell script, so it  is  required  that
       the file conforms to shell script conventions.


              Specifies  the default location for the archived chroot image to
              be created  and  used.   This  is  overridden  with  the  option

              The  default  place  which  the chroot is constructed.  pbuilder
              will use the directory $BUILDPLACE$$.  which means, that it will
              use the directory and the PID to determine the directory to use.
              This should obtain an unique directory for  concurrent  runs  of
              pbuilder  in  one  machine.  This is not guaranteed to happen on
              network shared drives, so be aware of  this  fact  when  playing
              with  this  option on NFS shared beowulf clusters.  Change it to
              something like /var/cache/pbuilder/build/$HOSTNAME/  when  doing
              such a thing.

              pbuilder clean cleans up this directory.

              Specify  the  default  directory  which the build result will be
              copied over to after the building.

              Unlike --buildresult  command-line  option.   The  path  is  not
              canonicalized, so you should specify a full-path, not a relative

              Specify  the  mirror  site  which  contains  the   main   Debian

              Note  that you cannot really use file:/ kind of URL, because the
              location needs to be accessible from within the chroot.

       OTHERMIRROR=deb http://xxx/xxx/ ./ [| other deb lines... ]
              The lines which is added to the sources.list, delimited  with  |
              Like      deb      http://local/mirror      stable      main|deb
              file:/usr/local/mirror ./

              The deb lines here are the ones that will appear at the  top  of
              the  sources.list  inside  the  chroot.   Be  sure to follow the
              syntax rules of sources.list(5).   These  lines  appear  at  the
              beginning  of the constructed sources file, so this is the place
              to list your local mirror sites;  apt  will  then  use  them  in
              preference to the ones listed in MIRRORSITE .

              To  make  changes on mirror site effective on update --override-
              config needs to be specified.

              Specify the default  distribution  to  use.   This  option  only
              affects  when doing pbuilder create or when --override-config is
              specified for pbuilder update option.

              Specify the default distribution components to use.  This option
              is   space-delimited.   This  option  only  affects  when  doing
              pbuilder create  or  when  --override-config  is  specified  for
              pbuilder update option.

       export http_proxy=http://your-proxy:8080/
              Defines the proxy for http connection.

              Specify  the location that the packages downloaded by apt should
              be cached.  Setting this value to "" will cause  caching  to  be
              turned off.

              Specify  using  hard links in apt cache handling.  Changing this
              to no will disable hard linking and will copy the files.

              It is advised to set this to no  if  you  are  using  user-mode-

              Specifies  the  default  location  for the user hooks directory.
              This is overridden with the option --hookdir.

              If this is specified, hooks are searched for in the chroot, when
              running  pbuilder.  If it is not defined, or is an empty string,
              hooks are not executed.

              For details, see pbuilder.1


              The options given here will be passed on  to  dpkg-buildpackage.
              This can be useful e.g. for binary-only builds. The command-line
              option --debbuildopts overrides  any  contents  specified  here.
              The default value is to build source and binary package.

              When  this  value  is set, pbuilder will mount these directories
              using bind-mount.

              Example: BINDMOUNTS="/home /mnt/test "

              Do not bind-mount /

              When this option is set to yes pdebuild-internal  implementation
              of pdebuild is used.

              When this option is set to --variant=buildd pbuilder will invoke
              debootstrap with "--variant=buildd"  option,  which  results  in
              debootstrap  creating  a  minimal  chroot  for buildd instead of
              trying to create a minimal installation chroot.

              Use this option to switch  the  implementation  of  debootstrap.
              Known   implementations  of  debootstrap  are  cdebootstrap  and

       EXTRAPACKAGES="ccache linda XXX"
              Specifies extra packages which the system should install in  the
              chroot  on  pbuilder  create.   This  is a space-delimited list.
              Also this is installed on pbuilder build

       export DEBIAN_BUILDARCH=athlon
              Uses this variable as DEBIAN_BUILDARCH.  This trick can be  used
              for other environmental variables as well.

              Specify  yes  when it is desired to mount /proc interface. It is
              usually a good idea, since there are many  software  which  fail
              miserably when there is no /proc being mounted.

              Specify  yes  when it is desired to mount /dev/pts interface. It
              is usually a good idea, since there are many software which fail
              miserably when there is no /dev/pts being mounted.

              Specify  the  packages  to  be  removed  on creation of base.tgz
              Leaving lilo in the chroot is like keeping a timebomb...

       DEBEMAIL=Maintainer Name <Mail@Address>

              If this was specified, dpkg-buildpackage command will be  passed
              with   the   necessary   sponsorship  option  -mMaintainer  Name
              <Mail@Address> on building.  Overridden with --debemail command-
              line option.

              The  default configuration for pbuilder is empty for this value.


              This  option  is  used  on  invocation  of  fakeroot  for  dpkg-
              buildpackage in pdebuild


              This option is used on invocation of pbuilder build in pdebuild


              This  option  is  used  by  various parts of pbuilder to satisfy
              (i.e. install) the build-dependencies of a package.   There  are
              three   implementations,   the   "experimental"  implementation,
              "pbuilder-satisfydepends-experimental", which might be useful to
              pull  packages from experimental or from repositories with a low
              APT Pin Priority,  the  "aptitude"  implementation,  which  will
              resolve  build-dependencies  and  build-conflicts  with aptitude
              which helps dealing with complex  cases  but  does  not  support
              unsigned  APT  repositories,  and  the "classic" implementation,
              which is the  original  implementation  used  until  0.172.  The
              default is now "aptitude".

              The uid to be used inside chroot.  It should ideally not collide
              with user-id outside the chroot, to  avoid  user  inside  chroot
              having  access  to  processes  owned  by the user id outside the

              The user name of the user the build  will  run  as.   Specifying
              this will enable the use of fakeroot inside pbuilder.

              Note  that this will require fakeroot to be installed within the
              chroot, and  fakeroot  will  automatically  be  installed.   And
              -rfakeroot will be added to DEBBUILDOPTS

              Configures  where  the  apt configuration files are copied from.
              By  default,  this  value   is   empty,   allowing   the   usual
              configuration  options  to  take  effect.  Setting this variable
              overrides other options.

              Sets timeout time.  Build will be stoped with SIGTERM after  the
              set time.

       export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
              Sets  interactiveness  of  pbuilder  run.  Setting this value to
              blank will cause the pbuilder run  to  be  interactive.   Change
              this value when noninteractive upgrades do not work.

              Whether to use DEVFS or not.


              Set the UID and GID of the files built as result.  They probably
              need to be set to numeric UID values, so that it works the  same
              inside the chroot and outside the chroot.

              If sudo is used, the values specified by sudo is used.  They are
              SUDO_UID, and SUDO_GID.  The default value is 0

              When this value is set to  yes,  pdebuild  will  invoke  debsign
              command after building.
              The extension of filename used in pkgname-logfile option.

              Always  run  with --pkgname-logfile option, and create a logfile
              named after the package name.

              Specify what pbuilder implementation to use for  pdebuild.   The
              currently possible values are pbuilder and cowbuilder
