Re: Cygwin acts weird to / in a chroot

Type 'mount' and I think that will help you see what's happening.

Hmm / is still mounted on /cygwin, it might only indicate a confused cygwin mount... The output from mount from a chroot in Linux is also kinda weird.

Cygwin is not Linux. Cygwin's 'mount' isn't even close to Linux's in semantics. Cygwin's 'mount' doesn't do much more than map POSIX paths to Win32 paths.

As Corinna said, you shouldn't try to use 'chroot' under Cygwin.  If you
do use it, you'll find you have problems.  Don't expect much and you won't
be disappointed. ;-)
