That sounds interesting. Is there a parameter to set the build
directory? I could format the ramdisk to tmpfs and mount it to
Now i need something like
lh config --build-dir /var/local/deblive/build

How is that done?
Does that mean it works like this:
[now chroot to chroot-dir and change something]
[if chroot is messed up or many new packages in the release, make a lh
clean and start again with fresh chroot-dir]

[x] CPU is one of the latest Intel Core duo. I will try to use a raid0,
but i think a ramdisk would be a lot better.
Thank you for your quick answers and for maintaining that nice project.
