Done, thanks for the patch! A (very slightly) modified version of your patch was committed into our git repository, and will be in the next stable and development releases: http://git.debian.org/?p=buildd-tools/schroot.git;a=commitdiff;h=2ab6a0b16f7526df8574db7b0792989047baa70e http://git.debian.org/?p=buildd-tools/schroot.git;a=commitdiff;h=48a24ea4e5a893a1f3404cad2b89d90e5d01232f Regarding GNU/kFreeBSD compatibility: So far, schroot /has/ been written with portability in mind, but has as yet only run on *-linux-gnu platforms, though someone did try to port to Interix (!). Once it compiles cleanly, there are some Linux-isms which still need to be addressed. The setup scripts in bin/schroot/setup might need some special-casing or reworking for specific platforms. Specific examples include: - use of /proc/mounts in scripts and bin/schroot-listmounts/schroot-listmounts-main.cc. - use of LVM - use of (recursive) bind mounts - copying of specific files in /etc - there may be more; it needs testing Some of these are simple packaging issues. Ideally, only setup scripts which make sense on a given platform should be installed. The same applies to chroot types such as lvm-snapshot which might not work; these need checking in configure.ac and conditionally compiling and installing. For features such as kernel personalities, the logic is already there. The same applies to use of /proc/mounts, which needs a fallback to /etc/mtab or any more appropriate equivalent. None of this should be particularly difficult to do, but schroot won't work optimally on GNU/kFreeBSD without an hour or so of ironing out the minor Linux-isms which are undoubtedly present. At this point, it should work quite nicely. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
