Howdy folks,

Just posted a short guide to setup an Arch chroot in a Galaxy S3, using odroid-x images:

Many thanks to the folks in this thread for the inspiration.

You didn't need to unpack the .img file.
There are .tar.gz files on http://os.archlinuxarm.org/os/

Hi.

I'm pretty new to this chroot stuff and I'm trying to chroot Arch-Linux on a Nexus 7.
Everything works fine but when i reboot my device, content of arch/ is removed.

Is that normal?

Thanks.

You need to reform the loop device, and then remount it.

I'm trying to do this on a Nexus 4, what image should I use? I was thinking the armv7 omap 3/4

Any other ideas?

Hello,

I had a probe with this. But i got a problem:
Code: Select all
systemctl status sshd.service
Running in chroot, ignoring request

Why I can't run any service from chroot?
Could you get me better solution?
Thanks

Systemd only work on live, running systems that boot with systemd. Looks like I will have to goto another disto for my arm chroot....

For sshd I usually start this as the chroot program instead of bash (then use VX ConnectBot to connect to my chroot). This works well enough for me. (aka 'chroot /path/to/chroot sshd'). This forks into the background and properly detaches, so you can close out your terminal and keep sshd running (the downside being a 'kill' command is the only way to shut it down).

As for systemd and/or other services, I think workdawg is correct that systemd only works as process 0. However, there is plenty on using systemd to start chroots and such, it's frustrating there doesn't seem functionalty to run it in a chroot.

For me, this doesn't impact my Arch experience too extensively--most services I would start are for handling network and power and such (which Android handles in this case).
