transfer config files to the chroot directory


I'd like to build wheezy live in a sid chroot using:

# debootstrap sid sid
# chroot sid
# apt-get install live-build
# mkdir wheezy-live
# cd wheezy-live
My problem is howto transfer all existing config files from local to the chroot directory?

You can transfer them at any time using cp from anoher terminal window, or even with a graphical file manager. You will probably have to change the permissions of the files once you copy them to the final destination.


chroot, live, sid, wheezy
