Live CD - Chroot

Posted from: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1156240.html

Pick up a liveCD, version doesn't matter, you could use any distro, as long as it ables you to enter to console.

# means run with root or sudo

1. Create a mountpoint
# mkdir /mount/point

2. Mount /proc /sys /dev to chroot
# mount -o bind /proc /mount/point/proc
# mount -o bind /dev /mount/point/dev
# mount -o bind /dev/pts /mount/point/dev/pts
# mount -o bind /sys /mount/point/sys

3. Copy resolv.conf to networking
# cp /etc/resolv.conf /mount/point/etc/resolv.conf

4.Open bash in chroot
# chroot /mount/point /bin/bash

5. Do what you have to do and then exit chroot
exit
