Yes, this is what I really felt like doing, since I had the ia32-libs
package. So I went ahead and skipped those instructions and added this to
,-----[ tail -n 5 /etc/fstab ]
| # Chroot mounts
| /home /var/chroot/sid-ia32/home none bind 0 0
| /tmp /var/chroot/sid-ia32/tmp none bind 0 0
| proc /var/chroot/sid-ia32/proc proc defaults 0 0
Installed firefox, mplayer, w32codecs, realplayer (last 3 from
Marillat's repos). I haven't tested mplayer yet, but realplayer has quite
jumpy video (not smooth), which got me thinking about the /dev mount. Any
further ideas on that welcome.
Another question that nobody seems to mention in the various how-tos is
what happens if you have say both the same 64-bit app in the main system
and 32-bit app in the chroot? Because /home is mounted in both systems,
each version will be messing with each other's config stuff, won't it?
Say things like ~/.mozilla would change and probably get messed up by
changes made by each version of firefox. How is that handled?
