My concern was : isn't /var/state/samhain at risk to remain longer as
needed if a fatal error occurs between creation and removal (say, the user
did something wrong in the config) ?
no, what makes you think so? the file is touched in order to prevent
samhain from doing stuff on package installation.
fakeroot -s .lb_fakeroot_state lb config --use-fakeroot true
fakeroot -i .lb_fakeroot_state -s .lb_fakeroot_state fakechroot lb build
would cause an error and the build to stop. Please correct me if I am
indeed; note that fakeroot support in live-build is a proof of concept
at best, there might be tons of things that break once you use it.
i'll push a fix for that to git in a moment.
I didn't realize I should discuss the point on the mailing list
the bts is to report bugs. if you have found a bug, please report it in
if you are wondering about certain things/you want to ask/talk
about/suggest/discuss/$whatever something that's not most likely a bug
or you're uncertain about if it is one, please use the malinglist.
or to put it more bluntly (that doesn't apply to you): if everyone would
open a bug just because they have a question about a certain piece of
code, we would be swamped in bug reports and couldn't really keep
oversight over which things are actual bugs and which are not. besides,
it would also mean significant effort of time to do triage on the bts
would it be used that way.
