    Something Like .profile or .bashrc Inside chroot

    Am I reading this right? When starting a chroot, the root user's .profile is used to initalize the environment? Or it CAN be read?

    Is My Computer Broken?

    At first, I did not isolate the specific problem, because the checker informed me that the I was using single and double quotation marks incorrectly. As a result, there were changes throughout the script. The particular problem I was having did not seem specially relevant at that point...

    Something Like .profile or .bashrc Inside chroot

    It looks like it will help. I will have to work with it later. Thank you for providing a lead on this. It seems like such a basic requirement, I am surprised a solid solution to this is not well known. Operating without any configuration for getting you started seems incredibly lame to me...
