mach Documentation


make a chroot of a rpm-based distribution
mach allows you to set up clean roots from scratch for any distribution or
distribution variation supported.
This clean build root can be used for several goals:
- making clean packages
- set up chroots for services to run it
- make disk images of clean roots (for example for UML)
Currently, mach works for rpm-based distributions that can work with apt
for rpm.
Included at this moment is the necessary information to set up:
- Fedora 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and development
- Red Hat 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 8, and 9
- CentOS 4
- Dave/Dina
- Conectiva 9
- SuSE 8.1, 8.2, and 9.0
- Yellowdog 2.3, and 3.0
Some handy features of mach include:
- "caching" of downloaded packages using the build hosts's apt
the build root
- ensures clean packages by reverting to the base set of build packages
- uses apt to resolve dependencies
- parsing of BuildRequires to install necessary packages for building
- build ordering when doing multiple builds
- support for flavours of distribution
- multiple build roots
- locking of buildroot to avoid concurrent builds
- optional signing of built packages
