    Unhappy Need to call chroot under normal unprevileged user !!

    Its been two days over, after my search started . But I didn't find answer any where ?. I need to call chroot as part of normal user, but to my surprise it can only be called by SUper user with CAP_SYS_CHROOT capabilities. I am not sure how to add this capability to my user . Please help me in solving my situation.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    I replied to this question on the forums yesterday. Read my answer there.

    I would say I see no issues with posting in many places as long as the answer also get posted to those places when you have it.

    HI finally we planned to over write the chroot method through LKM , guessing that will solve our problem.
