Broken link

In the last sentence of the "Setting up a chroot for a new install" section the hyperlink of "Configuring Portage" is to Handbook:X86/Installation/Base#Configuring_portage when it should be to (notice the difference in case) Handbook:X86/Installation/Base#Configuring_Portage. This one-letter difference in case is sufficient to break the link. Brenton (contribs · email · talk) 02:13, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Looks like this was taken care of. Closing --Grknight (talk) 14:24, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

I have written a chroot script, for this purpose, you could reference it for convenience. If my script does not fulfill your quality requirements, I'd be happy to improve my style by your feedback.

Chroot as user, bind/rbind

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

After following the steps in the article, (a) I am unable chroot as a user, and (b) after chrooting as root, I am unable to install necessary packages with the stage3 tarball unpacked as user. This is solved by (a) unpacking stage3 as root, and (b) chrooting as root, as suggested in the chroot article. Also, the chroot article suggests mounting directories with mount --rbind while this article suggests mount -o bind. Should the article be updated following the chroot article? Thanks.
