SYNOPSIS

faked [--debug] [--foreground] [--cleanup] [--key msg-key] [--load] [--save-file save-file] [--port TCP-port]

DESCRIPTION

If a fakeroot process wants to change the ownership of a file, then faked is the process that remembers that new owner. If later the same fakeroot process does a stat() for that filename, then the libfakeroot wrapped stat() call will first ask faked for the fake ownership etc of that file, and then report it.

OPTIONS

--debug Print debugging information on stderr.
--foreground
  Don’t fork into the background.
--cleanup number
  Cleanup the semaphores.
--key key-number
  Don’t allocate a new communication channel, but use channel specified by key. (If the specified channel doesn’t exist, it’s created).
--save-file save-file
  Save the environment to save-file on exit.
--load Load a previously saved environment from the standard input.
--unknown-is-real
  Use real ownership of previously-unknown files instead of setting them to root:root.
--port tcp-port
  Use TCP port tcp-port.

BUGS

None so far. Be warned, though: although I’ve written quite a few much larger (and smaller) programs, I’ve never written anything that was as tiny as fakeroot, had as many bugs as fakeroot, and still was as usable as, say, fakeroot version 0.0_3, the first version that could be used to build itself.

COPYING

fakeroot is distributed under the GNU General Public License. (GPL 2.0 or greater).
