NAME

uic_enter - chroots into the installation in the specified installation environment

SYNOPSIS

uic_enter [−hv] [ <environment_path> ]

DESCRIPTION

uic_enter chroots into the installation in the specified installation environment so that the user can make changes directly into the installation (like installing additional software). The shell prompt will be slightly modified in order to remember the user that he is working in a chroot-shell.

The special filesystems /sys, /proc, /dev, /dev/pts and /dev/shm are mounted in the installation area in order to offer full functionality during the installation. The undesired automatic start of services performed by software installation is inhibited by a temporary policy (/usr/sbin/policy-rc.d fails with return code 101).

To exit the chroot-shell, use the command exit or hit Ctrl+D.

<environment_path> can be omitted if the command is launched from within the environment directory. Otherwise it can be:

-

an absolute path to the environment directory (e.g.: /home/leo/netpoldo-1404-32)

-

a path to the environment directory relative to the current directory

-

a path to the environment directory relative to the default working path (usually /usr/src)

OPTIONS

−h, −−help

shows the help for the command.

−v, −−verbose

increases the verbosity level of the command. If specified more than once, the verbosity level will be increased.
