Bug#718632: chroot fails due to incorrect path on Arch Linux

Package: debootstrap
Version: 1.0.48+deb7u1
Severity: normal

Dear maintainer,

I tried to install a Debian chroot on an armhf Arch Linux system.

/usr/sbin/debootstrap --variant=minbase --arch armhf wheezy debian-chroot http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian
failed when reaching
chroot /home/user/temp/debian-chroot mount -t proc proc /proc
because command mount was not found.

The reason is that on Arch Linux /bin is not in the path. And chroot inherits this path.

When calling chroot the variable PATH should be set explicitly and not be inherited.

A good idea would be to use chroot -i to clear all environment variables and to set explicitly those that are needed like PATH.

Best regards

Heinrich Schuchardt
