I try to run "chroot /xxx /ls" as root on Solaris 2.5.1 but i get segmentation fault - core dumped.
I have copied ld.so and all libraries that ldd "/usr/ucb/ls" listed to /xxx/usr/lib and /usr/ucb/ls to /xxx/ls.
"adb /xxx/ls core" says :
SIGSEGV Segmentation Fault
Error while reading shared library:data address not found

Who can help me to correct the problem ?

My guess is that your still missing a library or too.  An easy way to find out would be to use truss.  When you go to run the chroot, put "truss" in before "truss chroot /xxx /ls".  This will spit out quite a bit of info.  But if you look at it closely, you 'll see that which libraries are being accesses.  So, when it bombs out, look back and see which library is causing it or which one your missing.
