Problem with chroot installation is finding space for it. Flash card would have plenty of space but that uses FAT32 so it can't be used directly. We can however create image and loopback mount it.
Create 2GB image file
dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/user/MyDocs/meego-image bs=1024 count=2097152
Create filesystem on image file
Create mount point and loopback mount the image
mkdir /mnt/meego mount -o loop /home/user/MyDocs/meego-image /mnt/meego
Unpack Meego rootfs image there
export MEEGO_ROOT="/mnt/meego" tar xzf <meego-image> -C $MEEGO_ROOT
Mounts for chroot environment
mount -o bind /proc $MEEGO_ROOT/proc mount -o bind /sys $MEEGO_ROOT/sys mount -o bind /dev $MEEGO_ROOT/dev mount -o bind /dev/pts $MEEGO_ROOT/dev/pts mount -o bind /var/lib/dbus/ $MEEGO_ROOT/var/lib/dbus/ mount -o bind /usr/share/fonts $MEEGO_ROOT/usr/share/fonts mount -t tmpfs tmpfs $MEEGO_ROOT/tmp mount -t tmpfs tmpfs $MEEGO_ROOT/var/run
Copy resolv.conf for networking
cp /etc/resolv.conf $MEEGO_ROOT/etc/resolv.conf
cd $MEEGO_ROOT chroot $MEEGO_ROOT /bin/bash
Don't forget to unmount all the system directories that were mounted inside chroot. You might have to setup MEEGO_ROOT again after leaving chroot.
cd ~ umount $MEEGO_ROOT/proc umount $MEEGO_ROOT/sys umount $MEEGO_ROOT/dev umount $MEEGO_ROOT/dev/pts umount $MEEGO_ROOT/var/lib/dbus/ umount $MEEGO_ROOT/usr/share/fonts umount $MEEGO_ROOT/tmp umount $MEEGO_ROOT/var/run umount $MEEGO_ROOT
