[os] Add some parameters to the base::os::debian class to make apt use
a directory other than /tmp for its cache. This is to get around
setting /tmp to noexec. Note that the default is to continue using
/tmp as apt's cache directory, so upgrading to this version is
safe. (adamhl)
a directory other than /tmp for its cache.
Reason: The apt utility when installing or uninstalling a package puts
its temporary files, including scripts it needs to execute, in
/tmp. If the /tmp partition is set to noexec (as recommended by
security advisors), then one cannot run any executable out of the /tmp
directory. The result is that the package install will not finish
properly. The new parameters in the base::os::debian class tell apt to
use /var/cache/apt/tmp as its temporary cache directory getting around
the /tmp noexec problem.
Note that the default is to continue using /tmp as apt's cache
directory, so upgrading to this version is safe. (adamhl)
