Have I skipped a few years or is this a thread by Linus Torvalds?

"About 30 years in Linux" I'd take from somebody in the Slackwareforum getting annoyed about something but in a thread lik this anyone could see that is rubbish.

Don't need to ask them, since I know the answers; you don't.

And hazel, you may be right since the spam-site he linked to initially was for English lessons (something the OP needs, funnily enough). However, the whole "so how do you chroot with an empty directory? Yes...*I* know, but I want to see if you know. Why don't you do it and tell me?" sounds like a ten-year-old in school, trying to get answers from their friend. Even the title of the thread, "Linux 101" is pretty telling.

That, coupled with "minimal requirement to boot?" (asking about the Linux boot sequence/order), and what's needed to compile programs, sure sounds like homework, albeit worded differently. All seems very first-year-comp-sci basic questions to me.

Sir, mentioning the site was just a matter of the lack of experience. I am just try to involve the people to what I think is interesting conversation.
As for your opinion ... it is a free country and you are entitled to it. But please have this ... those are honest questions. If you don't want anybody to get them
it is within your authority. But ask yourself those questions. Do you know the answers. If you do you will quickly find out that the conventional wisdom is of no use.
It is new. By the way I love this statement from the Road Less Traveled:

"If thinking were easy, everybody would be thinking"

So please keep your insulting beliefs about my post for yourself and the people who get along with you. Stay there ... it is so cozy to moderate based on your beliefs than
on some basic knowledge.

Regards

Yes..I DO know the answers; and I'm confident everyone else who posted here does too, besides yourself.

Again, you make zero sense; if you know the answers...you somehow DON'T know them, and conventional wisdom is of no use?

As you say, it is a free country; so I CAN say what I wish. If you're insulted, it is only because you've posted things that make no sense, won't answer questions, and have been caught in lies, and are now getting defensive about it. Funny how a 'scientist' has a website concerned about teaching English to beginners (something you apparently need), then ask very basic questions about Linux, and try to make them sound somehow 'deep' and complex. They're not...they're just more complex than you can understand.

So, want the whole chroot thing done? Then quit posting here and get to work, which is exactly as you've told others to do.

Since the thread has pretty much died a natural death it is being closed.
