Making a Build Host

Start with a new and in it put the following single line:

from parcel.helpers import *

This will bring in a bunch of standard fab targets for helping to setup build hosts. Run a fab -l to see the targets:

$ fab -l
Available commands:

    copy_ssh_key  This copies the local uses and keys into the authorized_keys
    setup_debian  Set up the build host for building in a debian way

If your key is not already on the build host, copy it across with copy_ssh_key:

$ fab -H hostname -u root copy_ssh_key

Put in the root password when asked and this will set you up for passwordless ssh root access.


To setup a debian build host, use the setup_debian target:

$ fab -H hostname -u root setup_debian
