Re: Installing packages to a foreign system
This looks like it does the trick, but I am curious; is this how the
installer does it? When the installer is first installing the system it
also needs to install the packages to the hard disk, but without having
them interfere with the running state of the installing system. Is this
how it does that?

For example, daemon packages try to start the daemon in the configure
script, which you can't do running inside a chroot. So my question
is, what is the proper way to install packages into a foreign system's
filesystem such that they do not attempt to modify the running host
