    I was very happy when I successfully installed UbuntuChroot 11.04 on my TouchPad, and then installed LibreOffice and FreeMind to work with my preferred ODF and MindMap files. The trouble is that I've got them on my /media/internal store on my TouchPad and I can't setup access to them.

    I've created a /media/internal folder under UbuntuChroot and updated /etc/fstab to point /dev/mapper/store-media to /media/internal, but my folders and files in /media/internal remain elusive.

    Any suggestions please?................Phil

    The canonical Linux solution for that would be to do something like
    Code:
    mount -obind /media/internal /mnt/UbuntuChroot/media/internal
    after mounting the Ubuntu filesystem.

    You'd have to modify your webOS's fstab.

    What I did was add a line similar to what Holland suggested to the chroot-wrapper.sh script in the debian-chroot bin folder. Rather than mount it in /media, though, I put it in the home folder of the user that runs gnome-session, so as to have it readily available.

    Hi,
    I have kind of the same problem. I would like to "mount" (symlink did not work), the /media/internal into the folder /media/ext3fs/ubuntu-natty-chroot/home/webos to be able to access webOS-files from the chroot and chroot-files from webos.
    Would a command as the following work?

    mount -o bind /media/internal/ /media/ext3fs/ubuntu-natty-chroot/home/webos/ ?

    Could I insert it into the fstab via:

    echo "mount -o bind /media/internal/ /media/ext3fs/ubuntu-natty-chroot/home/webos/" >> /etc/fstab ?

    Cheers,

    if you use shiftyaxels wifi/samba app, you can just run that before ubuntuchroot and if you had/have /media/internal set to browseable/writeable the shares show in your network within ubuntu.

    beats messing with fstab.

    Hi,
    thanks for the tip. I installed the app and configured as you described. Also I did set up samba (well installed it in the UbuntuChroot), but if I try to open my network (lxde-filemanager, menu go, network) I get the error "operation not supported".

    Maybe you can give me a hint ;-),

    to make sure your network functions correctly within ubuntu-chroot on both xfce4/lxde/etc make sure you goto your SETTINGS / SESSION AND STARTUP / ADVANCED, and enable the extra compatability services - GNOME/KDE, you should find your network functions normally after this. (cant remember if a restart was required or if it worked straight after)
