     45Running in a Chroot environment
     46-------------------------------
     47
     48If your distribution can't be supported by Sugar-build, you can install one
     49of the supported distributions in a disk partition and run Sugar without
     50switching between systems.
     51
     52This procedure requires `xchroot <http://www.zagura.ro/download/xchroot>`_.
     53
     54Mounting the partition::
     55
     56    MAINDEVICE=/dev/sda1
     57    HOMEDIR=/dev/sda5
     58    MOUNTPOINT=/mnt/ubuntu
     59
     60    mount $MAINDEVICE $MOUNTPOINT
     61    # Comment this line if you don't have a partition for the home directory       
     62    mount $HOMEDIR $MOUNTPOINT/home
     63
     64    cd $MOUNTPOINT
     65    mount -t proc proc proc/
     66    mount -t sysfs sys sys/
     67    mount -o bind /dev dev/
     68    mount -t devpts pts dev/pts/
     69
     70Chrooting to the environment::
     71
     72    USERNAME=sdf
     73
     74    cd $MOUNTPOINT
     75    xchroot . su $USERNAME
     76
     77Then you can follow the same way as in the supported distributions
     78to use Sugar-build.
