This is a step by step tutorial about Build services setup for Wanna-build.

Setting up a Buildd

INSTALL buildd

0. Installing sbuild

apt-get install sbuild schroot debootstrap

sbuild uses schroot to build packages. We'll create a directory for it and configure sbuild to use it.

mkdir -p /srv/chroot/<distribution>-<architecture>-sbuild
debootstrap wheezy /srv/chroot/<distribution>-<architecture>-sbuild
chown -R buildd:buildd /srv/chroot/<distribution>

Lets configure the chroot:

vim /etc/schroot/schroot.conf

The schroot's configuration file:

description=Debian wheezy (testing)

Configuring sbuild is explained here:

vim /etc/sbuild/sbuild.conf
sbuild-update --keygen
sbuild-createchroot --keyring=/etc/apt/trusted.gpg --arch=$arch $dist /srv/chroot/$dist-$arch-sbuild $mirror

vim /etc/fstab
mount -a

We'll now configure the schroot environment. We'll create two users and edit the sources.list file

echo "#!/bin/sh" > "$usersfile"
echo "groupadd -g $(id -g buildd) buildd" >> "$usersfile"
echo "useradd -u $(id -u buildd) -g $(id -g buildd) buildd" >> "$usersfile"
echo "groupadd -g $(id -g sbuild) sbuild" >> "$usersfile"
echo "useradd -u $(id -u sbuild) -g $(id -g sbuild) sbuild" >> "$usersfile"
chmod a+x "$usersfile"

chroot /srv/chroot/<distribution>
vim /etc/apt/sources.list

1. Disabling sbuild environment filters

vim /usr/share/perl5/Sbuild/ 

2. Install buildd and sudo

apt-get install buildd sudo

3. Patching buildd # patch buildd.patch

This file: /var/lib/buildd/build/SBUILD-GIVEN-BACK contains packages that will be skipped because the've already failed

Entropy tip

If while generating gpg-key there's not enough entropy, here's a command that can be useful for generating entropy:

find /usr /var /tmp /opt -type f -print0 | xargs -0 cat > /dev/null root@debian:~# cat buildd INSTALL buildd
