Re: Testing pbuilt packages (Was: Is sid recommended?)

pbuilder has a login feature that allows me to get a shell inside the

suspect that won't work. Is there some other way to handle this

I just discovered this recently myself and it seems very useful.

The way I get my packages in there is with OTHERMIRROR in pbuilderrc. Something like:

    OTHERMIRROR="deb http://localhost/debs/ ./"

Of course you'll have to generate the Sources and Packages index files to go along with your packages, but it's useful to verify those too anyway.
