From time to time we need to setup a gentoo system and we have another linux system on the drive. When we've got a basic linux system and an X server sorted, it'd be nice to play some music and browse the web while we're compiling gnome.
First of all, let's assume you have my hard disk layout:
|hdb3||other linux (e.g. Ubuntu)|
So you're in your new gentoo, and you want to put on some music.
|Code: Mount ewwBuntu like so|
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb3 /mnt/eww
|Code: Copy over your /dev directory|
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/eww/dev
|Code: And Enter the chroot|
chroot /mnt/eww /bin/bash
At this point you're still root, so you may want to become yourself : su james
|Code: And then let's open firefox and gaim|
firefox &; gaim &
I have yet to get audio working, but i'll update when i manage it
