Re: Automatic building of (parts of) the archive


I am still struggling with the setup of a local buildd for testing
purposes.  I was able to manually build a package, using the command

buildd@bombadil:~$ sbuild -d unstable -v hello_2.1.1-4

However, after I put a package into build/REDO:

buildd@bombadil:~$ cat build/REDO 
acl2_2.9.1-1 unstable

and start buildd, I get:

buildd@bombadil:~$ cat daemon.log 
Mar  8 23:44:22 buildd: Daemon started. (pid=8002)
Mar  8 23:44:31 buildd: Updated source-dependencies
Mar  8 23:48:48 buildd: Updated apt sources for unstable
Mar  8 23:48:49 buildd: Autocleaned apt cache directory for unstable
Mar  8 23:48:49 buildd: Starting build (dist=unstable) of:
Mar  8 23:48:49 buildd: acl2_2.9.1-1
Bad distribution
Mar  8 23:48:49 buildd: sbuild failed with status 2/0
Mar  8 23:48:49 buildd: Assuming all packages unbuilt and adding to REDO:
Mar  8 23:48:49 buildd: acl2_2.9.1-1
Mar  8 23:48:49 buildd: Build finished.

This is repeated 3 times, then I get

Mar  8 23:49:06 buildd: sbuild now failed 3 times in a row; going to sleep
Mar  8 23:49:06 buildd: sendmail failed (exit status 1/0)

(I guess I can find out the sendmail problem myself, didn't look at it
yet).  Why does it say "bad distribution"?  I have chroots at 

$ ls -l ~buildd/chroot*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 buildd buildd   12 Mar  8 22:57 /home/buildd/chroot-sid -> chroots/sid/
lrwxrwxrwx  1 buildd buildd   12 Mar  8 23:03 /home/buildd/chroot-unstable -> chroots/sid/

total 4
drwxr-xr-x  21 root root 4096 Mar  5 22:03 sid

The buildd is running as user buildd, not as root, but that is how it
should be, isn't it?
