Some changes are needed to build on debian because of the switch of the guest OS to bionic.
lxc that comes with debian is not high enough version to support bionic (the minimum is 2.1.1), so need to build from scratch.
debootstrap that comes with debian will give the following error:
$ bin/make-base-vm --lxc --suite bionic --arch amd64 E: No such script: /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/bionic
dependencies for gitian buildling on debian 9.5:
apt-get install autoconf automake pkg-config libcap-dev # get lxc 3.0.1 git clone https://github.com/lxc/lxc.git cd lxc git checkout lxc-3.0.1 ./autogen.sh ./configure sudo make install # get debootstrap wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/d/debootstrap/debootstrap_1.0.95.tar.gz tar -zxvf debootstrap_1.0.95.tar.gz cd debootstrap-1.0.95 sudo make install
- if you forget to install
libcap-devbefore building lxc,
lxc-executeis going to fail because an essential program
init.lxc.staticis not built
