(just trying to be wiseguy :) )

(1) I tested with same setup as in document ad worked for me, of course

(2) two time password :) But I think you can override the sudo password
with NOPASSWD in sudoers

(3) this is intended to, since you *sudo* chroot.

(4) actually you don't have a true login shell so the home directory
in /etc/passwd means nothing. The PWD will be the one you chrooted to

Not to mention that you can easily break out from that jail.

On the other hand I have noticed /etc/security/chroot.conf but never
found an RH/Fedora/CentOS document about how to set it up. It looks like
is using a pam module, pam_chroot.so

In the meanwhile there is another chroot howto. Sorry again guys that is
not Fedora related :D This time is debian.


You might be interested in the link it provides: chroot section of the
