    To evoke a package installed on HD


    Hi folks,

    FC3
    LFS LiveCD

    Would it be possible from LiveCD to evoke a package installed on HD ?

    LFS LiveCD only has basic packages installed unable to read .pdf and .doc/.rtf files. I imagine whether I can evoke OpenOffice/Xpdf/Acrobat_Reader from the LiveCD. They are installed on FC3 HD

    I performed following test without success.

    OOwriter is evoked on FC3 with;
    /usr/bin/oowriter

    While running LFS LiveCD
    On console
    # su -
    # mkdir /mnt/hd2
    # mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hd2
    # cd /mnt/hd2
    # chroot /
    # /usr/bin/ could not locate "oowriter". It seemed disappeared.

    Is there any method. TIA

    B.R.
