    chroot problem?


    I have booted up into Ubuntu 10.04 LTS disc live.

    When I type 'chroot /media/(UUID)', I get:

    chroot: cannot run command '/bin/bash': no such file or directory.

    '/bin/bash' does exist.

    Why is this error occurring?

    Ok, so I have learn't the reason I am getting this error is because '/bin/bash' doesn't exist in /media/(UUID)/bin.

    ... so what I am doing is actually trying to install GNU's coretools.
    The reason I am wanting to chroot to '/media/(UUID)' is because when I 'make install' coretools, it installs them onto my existing O/S partition.. when I need it installed to '/media/(UUID)'.

    I am creating my own Linux system.

    Do you mean GNU coreutils? Anyway, try this:
    Code:
    ./configure  --prefix=/media/(UUID)/bin
