Chroot Probelm
Authored by: thochman on May 22, '04 07:19:55PM

Reason I say this is that "chroot: /bin/bash: No such file or directory" is referring to the command "chroot" it can't find it cuz there probably is no path variable set.

Actually, it's chroot saying that /bin/bash cannot be found. If it was bash, the line would start with "bash" and not "chroot". :) The reason this is occurring is because chroot is using /jail as the / directory. Well, since no command is specified, chroot attempts to load up a shell. Namely, /bin/bash. If there's no /jail/bin/bash then chroot spits out the error seen here.
