Exclamation chroot doesn't work (with anything)


I know there are lots of posts in every Linux forum about getting apache to work with a chroot jail, but my problem is slightly more general: I can't get anything to work with chroot: not even bash.

I followed a howto (http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=04/05/24/1450203) for setting up apache, which didn't work, but when I tried copying bash's shared libs and running it in the jail, it didn't work either. This all led me to believe that there was a more fundamental problem here than just apache.

I followed the above page to the letter, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Syd

Are there any errors in any of the logs? The HOWTO also says:
Quote:
If something has gone wrong, you should try running your chrooted httpd with strace. The command # strace chroot /chroot/httpd /usr/sbin/httpd 2> httpd.strace redirects the output of strace to a file named httpd.strace which should give you an idea where the problem lies.
. You tried that too?

Try
strace -f -o /tmp/chroot chroot /chroot /bin/bash

You're not using prelink by any chance? I had some problems with this combined with chroot

/chroot/httpd/usr/sbin/httpd exist?

If you are sure about this, then I have a problem to understand what strace says.

From the tutorial, you have done this steps, don't you?

Hum.. no real idea otherwise.

There's a tool called makejail I think. Never used it but it is supposed to automate this, give it a try maybe.
