autopkgtest-virt-unshare - autopkgtest using unshare user namespaces
autopkgtest [...] -- unshare [options]
autopkgtest-virt-unshare provides an autopkgtest by using a rootfs tarball and the unshare command to create a chroot as a normal user. autopkgtest-virt-unshare requires the unshare(1) executable from util-linux version 2.38 or later. For distribution versions where that is not available system-wide, such as Debian 11, Ubuntu 22.04 and older releases, a locally-installed copy of the unshare executable in a directory prepended to the PATH is sufficient. Normally autopkgtest-virt-unshare will be invoked by autopkgtest.
-a | --arch ARCHITECTURE Debian name of the architecture. -b | --bind OUTSIDE INSIDE Bind mount a directory from the outside to a mountpoint inside. OUTSIDE needs to be an existing directory in the local filesystem. INSIDE needs to be an absolute path in the new chroot and will be created if it does not exist. -p | --prefix PREFIX Prefix for the temporary unpack directory (passed to mkdtemp ). -r | --release RELEASE The distribution to use Mnemonic: the r is the first letter in "release". -t | --tarball /path/to/tarball Path to a rootfs tarball. -u | --unpack-dir /path/for/new/rootfs Specifies a directory where the rootfs tarball should be extracted. By default mkdtemp is used to create a temporary directory. -d | --debug Enables debugging output. Probably not hugely interesting.
