faked - daemon that remembers fake ownership/permissions of files
manipulated by fakeroot processes.
faked [--debug] [--foreground] [--cleanup] [--key msg-key] [--load]
[--save-file save-file] [--port TCP-port]
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.
Print debugging information on stderr.
Don’t fork into the background.
Cleanup the semaphores.
Don’t allocate a new communication channel, but use channel
specified by key. (If the specified channel doesn’t exist, it’s
Save the environment to save-file on exit.
--load Load a previously saved environment from the standard input.
Use real ownership of previously-unknown files instead of
setting them to root:root.
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 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.
