Setting up a network inside a chroot

This is a simple tutorial on how to get internet access in a chroot environment.

The requirements are:
Your chroot will be running under a main OS, which is already connected to the internet.
You already have mounted the disk to chroot to.

# mount -o bind /sys /media/chrooted_disk/sys
# mount -o bind /proc /media/chrooted_disk/proc
# chroot /media/chrooted_disk

You need to reset the network in order for the route/dns stuff to be setup.

# dhclient eth0
# dhcpcd

Have fun 😉
