Usage of Script build-mkschroot

To automatically create the chroot environment use:

chroot-setup/build-mkschroot [--arch=<arch>] <suite> <target-dir> [<mirror>]

For example:

sudo chroot-setup/build-mkschroot --arch=i386 hardy hardy-i386


  • arch stands for different arch supported by the CPU, for example i386 on AMD64 or LPIA on i386 etc.
  • suite stands for release name such as hardy, gutsy, intrepid etc.
  • target-dir stands for the directory where the chroot environment will be installed.
  • mirror stands for the http location to download environment from, http://host[:port]/dir/

Note: You don't need to specify a mirror when using the LPIA arch
