I have Linux 1.2.1 installed on a harddisk partition and everything is working
well. Recently I created a new partition and installed a small filesystem
with kernel 1.3.79, the gcc2.7.2 compiler and Elf filesystems standards.
This seems to be a success.
My question is this: Is there an elegant and
simple way to run the utilities I have on my original Linux partition from
the new partition which uses the new kernel and libraries?
I have mounted the old partition under the new one just so I can get at it.
Of course I could create a large set of symbolic links, but this doesn't
qualify as elegant. And it seems quite dangerous. So what is the good answer?
Thanks, J. Beck
