Seems debian-specific.


Right now I'm having a problem with UML and
i found a solution.

# mount root_fs mnt-uml/ -o loop
# echo "LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1" >> /mnt-uml/etc/environment
# umount mnt-uml/

I'm curious. Is there a way to tell sysvinit to add something
to the environment, perhaps in inittab?
