Re: Apt-get for users


isn't there something floating around that allows for complete chroot
enviroinments per users? But then I think you have to be root to chroot
in the first place, so the admin at least has to allow to user to do so
by installing a suid wrapper to enter the chroot. Or something like
that. Don't take that too serious, just crossed my mind.
