## Prerequisites:

### Arch:

sudo pacman -S python2-cheetah qemu rsync
sudo pacman -S lxc libvirt bridge-utils # for lxc mode

From AUR:

* [apt-cacher-ng](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/apt-cacher-ng/) (you may have to play with permissions (chown to apt-cacher-ng) on files to get apt-cacher-ng to start)
* [debian-archive-keyring](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/debian-archive-keyring/) (for making Debian guests)
* [debootstrap](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/debootstrap/)
* [dpkg](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dpkg/)
* [gnupg1](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gnupg1/)
* [multipath-tools](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/multipath-tools/) (for kpartx)
* [ubuntu-keyring](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ubuntu-keyring/) (for making Ubuntu guests)

From Launchpad:

* [vmbuilder](https://launchpad.net/vmbuilder)

Also, I had to modify the default /etc/sudoers file to uncomment the `secure_path` line, because vmbuilder isn't found otherwise when the `env -i ... sudo vmbuilder ...` line is executed (because the i flag resets the environment variables including the PATH).

### Gentoo:

layman -a luke-jr # needed for vmbuilder
