python-apt/gdebi based pbuilder-satisfydepends-gdebi (closes: #453388)
From: Michael Vogt <email@example.com> In Ubuntu, we've applied the attached patch to achieve the following: * Makefile: - Addded pbuilder-satisfydepends-gdebi * pbuilder-buildpackage-funcs: - always pass --chroot to the pbuilder-satisfydepends (needed for pbuilder-satisfydepends-gdebi) * pbuilder-satisfydepends-gdebi: - added alternative b-d resolver pbuilder-satisfydepends-gdebi is a build-dependencies resolver based on gdebi (that in turn uses python-apt/libapt). It is fast and does not need to build a dummy package. It should behave exactly like apt-get build-dep $pkg It used to be more interessting because of the speed gain when pbuilder-satisfydepends-classic was the default. You probably want to add a recommends or suggests for gdebi too (if you like the patch method). Modified by dancerj: --chroot is given before --chrootexec so that cowdancer can continue to work.
