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

man invoke-rc.d
less /usr/share/doc/sysv-rc/README.policy-rc.d.gz
