autopkgtest-build-lxd(1) Create or update autopkgtest container for autopkgtest-lxd


autopkgtest-build-lxd image


autopkgtest-build-lxd creates or updates an LXD image which is optimized for autopkgtest's LXD runner autopkgtest-lxd(1).

It builds a temporary container from an existing given image, runs autopkgtest's standard setup-commands/setup-testbed script, and publishes it as a new image with the alias autopkgtest/distro/release/architecture.

You can specify an apt proxy to use in the container in the $AUTOPKGTEST_APT_PROXY environment variable. If you have an apt proxy configured on the host, the container will automatically use this, otherwise there is no default.


Build a local autopkgtest container image for Debian sid i386, based on the stock Debian image from the public remote:

$ autopkgtest-build-lxd images:debian/sid/i386
