I'm trying to chroot into a Arch Linux ARM filesystem from x86_64.

I've seen that it's possible to do using static qemu by copying the binary into the chroot system:

cp /usr/bin/qemu-arm archarm-chroot/usr/bin
But depite this I always get the following error:

chroot: failed to run command ‘/bin/bash’: Exec format error
I know this means that the architechtures differ. Am I doing something wrong?

arch-linux chroot arm

Do you try to install Debian ARM or do you by any chance try to instal x86_64 from a 32 bit system?

Hi I tried on i686 so I read that was the problem. Using "foreign" did not help.
So I mounted a live on the armel and could debootstrap without problem.

qemu maybe but couldnt boot it.

I ll lokok the link thanks !
