NAME

empbuilderlib - Common functions for Emdebian chroots  

DESCRIPTION

empbuilderlib is intended solely for use on the build machine. Do not use these functions in second_stage_install ! empbuilderlib requires perl!

empbuilderlib is a shell library which requires perl and pbuilder (which means bash!). empbuilderlib draws in POSIX shell functions from emrootfslib to be able to call in functions from first_stage_install within debootstrap. The only reasons to continue putting new functions in here are if:

1. The functions are only useful to create cross-building chroots OR

2. the functions need to call pbuilder code directly and are not necessary within first_stage_install.

There should be no need to call pbuilder code within scripts that generate a root filesystem.  

AUTOCLEAN_APTCACHE

Same as the pbuilder option but run by default in empdebuild to remove obsolete .deb archives from the apt cache directories used by empdebuild.  

COPY_HOST_CONFIGURATION

Copy hosts, hostname and resolv.conf from the system /etc/ directory and adapts /etc/hostname to use a different name (emdebian-$ARCH).  

EXTRACTEMBUILDPLACE

Modified version of the equivalent function in pbuilder-modules to extract the compressed chroot (used by empdebuild).
