Easy? First I have to switch to a different xterm. The I have to navigate
to the approprite location or enter a full path, taking care to append
$LFS/ at the beginning (which I constantly forget when coming from
chroot). And of course I have to do that as root because of permissions,
which makes me feel very uneasy because I could screw up my base system if
I confused the chroot and the non-chroot xterms (as I've mentioned
elsewhere, prompts don't help me much).
I tried sniffing Coke once, but the ice cubes got stuck in my nose.
