           Summary: changing user breaks when chrooted in script
           Product: Automated Linux From Scratch
           Version: 1.2.4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Back End (XML Handlers)
        AssignedTo: alfs-log at linuxfromscratch.org

I am attempting to modify the default ALFS profile so that I can automate my own
package-handling system, using package users (as described in one of the hints
on the LFS site).  Anyway, it requires change to a user that only exists on my
LFS partition (not on the parent system) while chrooted into the LFS partition.
 This doesn't work; it gives the error "user not found".  However, if I manually
chroot and then su to the user, everything works as expected.  I'm not entirely
clear on how exactly nALFS does all of the context switching, but this seems
like a bug to me.  I'd be happy to give any additional information necessary.
