Re: arch32-light: minimal 32-bit chroot

I think unless you want 'intelligent' decision-making on this, best to just let it fail. However, when it fails you should unmount the earlier points (/proc was not unmounted when it failed on /proc/bus/usb in my testing). Its Arch, let the user figure out what to do with it.

The new daemon has a "umount" command, so the user can do that. I think it's safer than doing it automatically.

True, did not see that (haven't actually looked at anything new on it, or on mimeo/pbget). A warning may be nice, but would not have been necessary if I'd just thought a bit anyway. No big issue, as usual its mostly PEBKAC.

Re: arch32-light: minimal 32-bit chroot

Installed Arch i686 from my running x86_64.
arch32-light came in handy for that job, thanks xyne!

EDIT:
Also for a newcomer to multi-arch environment it's pretty cool to
Get the wanted AUR package's files in /tmp/builds/PACKAGE

[desktop] (ssh) # arch32 su USER -c "cd /tmp/builds/PACKAGE && makepkg -sr"
...
[desktop] (ssh) $ scp PACKAGE.tar.xz laptop:/path/to/mybuilds/
[laptop]~ $ sudo pacman -U PACKAGE.tar.xz

Just needed once for all:

[desktop] (ssh) # pacman32 -S base-devel
[desktop] (ssh) # vim /etc/arch32d.conf  #adding /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
[desktop] (ssh) # arch32m sync
[desktop] (ssh) # pacman32 -S <PACKAGE dependancies>

Also did the following but looking at the man, looks it comes from old habits rather than being required to attain the goal above.

[desktop] # arch32
[desktop] # mv /etc/pacman.conf /etc/pacman.conf.SAV
[desktop] # ln -s /etc/pacman32.conf /etc/pacman.conf
[desktop] # pacman-key --init && pacman-key --populate && pacman -Syu

Oh, looks as if clean-chroot-manager automatises shared builds management well wink

Re: arch32-light: minimal 32-bit chroot

When I start windowed applications with this (by sudo arch32 sudo -u username applicationname), I get squares instead of text/font in every application. Looks like this:
