I'm attempting to run firefox in a 32-bit chroot using schroot with

    $ schroot -c firefox firefox
    I: [firefox chroot] Running command: "firefox"

    (firefox-bin:16741): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

Even when I run "xhost +localhost" and schroot in and manually set
DISPLAY=:0, I get the same results. What else am I missing here?

I'm intrigued as to the quickest way to build the smallest 32 bit chroot (schroot?) on my AMD64 box, for just this purpose (running a "full" browser with alll the plugins...) Any advice welcome! M
