Usage of Script make_chroot

To automatically create the chroot environment use:

chroot-setup/make_chroot <suite> <arch> [<mirror>]

For example:

sudo mkdir -p /usr3/chroots # prep environment
sudo chroot-setup/make_chroot precise amd64


  • 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.
  • 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
