Question Executing bash through a symlink


Hey, I'm trying to setup a chrooted enviroment. I am using "Jail Chroot Project 1.9". I made a basic chroot enviroment that i have added software too (including bash).

When i add a new user, I create a new /home/username directory and also add that as a new chroot enviroment.

What i want to do is to link my main enviroments folders like bin, lib, usr, var to each users home directory, so one change will be effective for all chrooted users. I have tried to do this by making hardlinks and I get permission denied(main enviroment and individual enviroments are on the same partition). If i do it with symlinks it appears to work fine but when i go to login as a user, it says "Jail: can't canonize path "/bin/bash". Bad path?"

Yet if i cd to /home/test/bin, the bash executable is in the listing.

Anyone have any ideas.

When doing chroot(/home/username) #set root
from that point on /bin is /home/username/bin, which should reflect in the users passwd file, which resides at /home/username/etc/passwd, the $PATH statement.

Please don't waste threads like you do here, you already have got a thread running about this problem.
