Per normal usage, if you use the `-K` switch, then the build, source, etc directories will be left alone on completion. If you then invoke as `dabuild build`, then the source will not be re-fetched -- useful when you wish to edit the source to debug a package build.
## Problems with multi-arch support
## Configure multi-arch support
Docker-for-Mac comes with multi-arch support (by configuring `binfmt_misc` in the Linux VM to use `qemu-$ARCH-static`) out of the box. If you are running on native Docker for Linux, then you can install similar support via
``` shell
docker run --rm --privileged multiarch/qemu-user-static --reset -p yes
docker run --rm --privileged \
multiarch/qemu-user-static --reset --persistent yes --credential yes
Note that this may reconfigure any existing `binfmt_misc` setup that you have. See <> for more detail.
