I have puppy linux and damnsmalllinux installed on the same HD .
thanks to your posts I learned how to chroot into another distro from puppy now my question is
how to get out of chroot and into puppy again I tried crtl+D but it did not work
and if I kill the xserver my screen goes black . is there a way to jump from one distro to the other ?.

Show them how to make their own bread and tomorow the will have their own bakery

Doug the Slug, I would tell you, but I don't know exactly. Sorry.

Usaully just typing exit at the prompt does the trick and it's always a good idea the umount /proc that's been mounted in the chroot filesystem....tho I'm not too sure if running a xserver in the chroot enviroment is a good idea...Usually it's used for console situations

Yep, as Bladehunter says, just type exit.
I will also echo the same advice, don't run any X apps in the chrooted environment.

actually both /dev/pts and /proc should be mounted in the chroot session...then unmounted afterwards


mount proc /proc -t proc
mount devpts /dev/pts -t devpts

Certain applications require them for operation
