Setting up a chroot on a Jessie system to compile a program using sid
This is sort of a continuation of the thread started with the post
"Recommendation for Virtual Machine and Instructions to set it up?"
Aside: the programmer has been able to send me a binary which does work on my
Jessie system, but, never-the-less, I plan to start experimenting with either
a chroot or VM environment to run either sid or a recent Ubuntu release so
that I can compile / build the binary myself.
The machine I want to do this on does not have any unallocated partitions /
disk space. There are two partitions, currently used for other purposes, that
I could free up to use for the chroot (or, later, VM) by moving files around.
One of the partitions I could free up is 16 GB, the other is 54 GB -- I'd
rather free up and use the smaller one, but I'm wondering if that will be big
