Accessing folders outside a chrooted environment


Hello,

I have a NAS and made a chrooted gentoo environment. All is well but I would like to access /volume1 on the host distro. Is this possible within a chrooted environment?

fstab entry:
/dev/md2 /volume1 ext3 defaults 0 0

Thanks,

Dennis

Isn't that what chroots are made for? So a process isn't able to peek outside of it? If the chroot allows for networking then you could export /volume1 on the host as any network filesystem the chroot client can access: NFS, SMB, SSHFS, HTTP, FTP, you get the idea.
