       pbuilder-user-mode-linux - personal package builder in UML


       pbuilder-user-mode-linux create [options]

       pbuilder-user-mode-linux update [options]

       pbuilder-user-mode-linux build [options] .dsc-file

       pbuilder-user-mode-linux execute [options] script

       pbuilder-user-mode-linux login [options]


       Front  end program to the pbuilder suite of programs, used for creating
       and maintaining user-mode-linux environment and building Debian package
       within the user-mode-linux virtual machine environment.

       Unlike  pbuilder  ,  pbuilder-user-mode-linux  does  not  require  root
       privilege to run.  It should be ran under a normal user.


       create Creates  a  user-mode-linux  root  image   for   the   specified
              distribution using rootstrap software

       update Updates   the  user-mode-linux  root  image  for  the  specified
              distribution.  Also, by specifying the --distribution option, it
              is  possible  to  switch  the  distribution.   Specify  a  dummy
              distribution value even for custom apt config files.

       build  Builds the package specified by .dsc-file within the  user-mode-
              linux environment.

       login  Invokes shell within UML.

              dumps  configuration information about user-mode-linux, used for

              Invokes a command or script inside UML.  execute will  copy  the
              specified file into the UML system, and run it.

              The  remaining  command-line  arguments  are  passed  on  to the

       --uml-image [UML image]
              Specify the UML image to use.

       --eth0 [uml option for eth0]
              Specify this option as parameter to UML.

              Specify --eth0=slirp,12345,/usr/bin/slirp-fullbolt  to  use  the
              slirp connection.

       --uml-ip [IP inside UML]
              Specify this to set the IP inside UML.

              This can be set to dhcp for obtaining IP address through DHCP.

       --uml-netmask [netmask]
              The netmask.

       --uml-network [network]
              The network address.

       --uml-broadcast [broadcast]
              The broadcast address.

       --uml-gateway [gateway]
              The gateway address.

       --mount-tmpfs [yes]
              Specify whether to mount tmpfs inside UML chroot.

       --uml-hostname [uml-host]
              The hostname inside uml.

       --distribution [sid]
              Specify the distribution.  see pbuilder(8)

              Specify only to build binary-arch targets.  see pbuilder(8)

       --timeout timeouttime
              Timeout build after specified time.  see pbuilder(8)

       --configfile config file to read
              Makes  pbuilder  to  read the config file inside UML.  pbuilder-
              user-mode-linux itself would be affected by the contents of  the
              config file.

       --hookdir location of hooks
              Makes pbuilder use the specified hookdir inside UML.

       --aptconfdir apt configuretion directory
              Makes  pbuilder  to  use  specified  apt configuration directory
              instead of other settings. See pbuilder(8)

              Specify  this  option  along  with  --distribution   to   switch
              distribution using pbuilder-user-mode-linux update

       --logfile logfilename
              Specify this option to make the output go to logfilename as well
              as standard output.

       --buildresult /dir/to/build/result
              The directory where build result is placed to

              Enable     tracing     of     shell     scripts     used      by

       --bindmounts /dir/to/bind-mount
              Bind-mount the directory inside the chroot inside the user-mode-

       --buildplace place-to-put-COW-file
              Specify the directory to place the COW file.  The user needs  to
              be able to access that directory, and the directory must exist.

              Do  not  use  COW filesystem when using pbuilder-user-mode-linux
              login so that changes made in the log in session will persist.

              Effective in login and exec options.

       --mirror [mirror location]
              Specifies  the  URL  of  Debian  mirror  to  be   specified   in
              sources.list  inside the chroot.  This option is only valid when
              distribution is being specified, for update and  build  targets.
              The  format  is something like:
              which should point to your favourite mirror.

              This option can optionally be omitted, and left blank, in  which
              case, this part is skipped.

              Note  that  these  URLs  specified to pbuilder will be used from
              within the chroot, and  specifying  file:/somewhere/  will  most
              probably fail.

       --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 --mirror .

              These options are only valid when  --override-config  option  is
              specified  in  update  target,  or when pbuilder create is being


       For build and login targets, pbuilder-user-mode-linux will try  to  use
       COW devices.

       Inside  user-mode-linux,  pbuilder-user-mode-linux  will mount tmpfs as
       /tmp to avoid temporary file race conditions with outside of UML.  This
       may cause problems trying to use files in /tmp directory.


              The system-wide configuration file for pbuilder.

              The  default  settings  for  pbuilder,  used as fallback for all
              values that is not specified in /etc/pbuilderrc.

              System-wide configuration file for pbuilder-uml,  it  will  take
              priority over pbuilder configurations.

              Software-default configuration file for pbuilder-uml.

              User-default configuration file.
