faked(1)                                              Debian GNU/Linux manual                                              faked(1)

       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  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 ex‐
              ist, 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.

              Use real ownership of previously-unknown files instead of setting them to root:root.

       --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  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.
