Extra Packages

The container-based Linux build is much faster than the VM-based system, but it comes with the limitation that no sudo commands are allowed. However, if you're just using sudo for package installation, then the addons section allows package installation from a whitelist without sudo.

Some of the whitelisted packages: aren't in the default sources, so you might also need to add a new sources: entry from the whitelisted sources.

This also makes it important that you check through the "apt" output from your build after you've added a new prerequisite package, because failures to install the packages in the addons section won't fail the build at that step (and the "apt" section of the build log is folded closed by default).
