clean chroot?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 26, 2007 02:45 PM
Afaik you're supposed to perform an extra step not covered by the article and that's bilding in a clean chroot environment, the main reason for this beeing that it's easy to forget to add all dependencies and it makes rebuilding easier. A tool to do this is the sbuild package. And that's about as much as I'll pretend to know even under the veil of anonymity, real knowledge and insights as to how this is done is greatly appreciated.
