Notice that ``chroot newroot command > x'' creates the file x relative to the original root, not the new one.
This command is restricted to the super user.
The new root pathname is always relative to the current root even if a chroot is currently in effect. The newroot argument is relative to the current root of the running process. Note that it is not possible to change directories to what was formerly the parent of the new root directory; that is, the chroot command supports the new root as an absolute root for the duration of the command. This means that ``/..'' is always equivalent to ``/''.
: not found'' is reported.
