yes I read that, I try to run .bash_profile manually (sh $LFS/root/.bash_profile) and the prompt change
but from chroot can't run that, what's wrong? I check that env in my $LFS dir is already installed, so why after I ran chroot bla bla didn't make the result.

or what I must check to make sure this work?
I look at -i as parameter on chroot, to clear any environment before, but it seem useless
I look at my env, didn't look changed.
what I must do to look why chroot didn't work?

thank you
