I'm beginning to understand the function of chroot but I don't know its
limitations. I'm practicing how to remaster a linux cd (using Kanotix
2005-4). So far I uncompressed and copied the KNOPPIX file contents to a
/tmp/extracted_fs folder. I chroot to extracted_fs and removed or added
packages with apt-get. Now I get the idea of running a window manager while
in the chroot environment by typing startx. This just results with an error
(so does init 5). What do I have to setup to get a window manager running?
Is an X server running in a chroot environment? Can it run? Did I conmit
the usual newbie mistake? Please advise. I need to get a customized CD
working for a project teaching kids chess using a Linux live CD. Thanks in
