Are you trying to enter the Chroot environment?

If so, maybe you need to specify which program needs to be executed ... Like explained in chapter 6.4 (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter06/chroot.html)

Like so:

chroot /mnt/lfs /tools/bin/env -i HOME=/root TERM="$TERM"  PS1='\u:\w\$ PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/tools/bin /tools/bin/bash --login +h

Open in new window


You'll need to adjust for your setup/config ...

You may need to have "/bin/bash" in /mnt/lfs/bin/bash and all libs that bash uses also in /mnt/ifs/lib

You can see which libraries bash uses with the command ldd, ldd /bin/bash

In my system bash uses the following libraries:

# ldd /bin/bash
      linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xffffe000)
        libtermcap.so.2 => /lib/libtermcap.so.2 (0xb77fc000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb77f8000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb7698000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb780e000)

So you may need to copy all of these libraries to the lib directory inside your new root which is /mnt/ifs/lib

Use "cp -a" and wildcard in order to copy even symlinks.

cp -a /lib/libtermcap* /mnt/ifs/lib

Some libraries may depend on other libraries, and you can inspect it with ldd also.

ldd /lib/libtermcap.so.2
