faked - daemon that remembers fake ownership/permissions of files
manipulated by fakeroot processes.
[--debug] [--foreground] [--cleanup] [--key
If a fakeroot process wants to change the ownership of a file, then
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.
Print debugging information on stderr.
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 a previously saved environment from the standard input.
Use real ownership of previously-unknown files instead of setting them to
- --port tcp-port
Use TCP port tcp-port.
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
had as many bugs as
and still was as usable as, say,
version 0.0_3, the first version that could be used to build itself.
