Install Ubuntu Lucid Lynx root file system from command line

Here is a link to a more thorough post

If you are running an older version of ubuntu, or some other debian distribution, you can create a lucid lynx root file system like this

First install the debootstrap package (it should include the settings file for lucid lynx)
1. download it from
2. install it with sudo dpkg -i NAME_OF_PACKAGE.deb

Create the root filesystem (on a mounted partition, that you have prepared, here I just mkdir a place)

3. mkdir ~/lucid
4. sudo debootstrap --variant=buildd --arch i386 lucid ~/lucid

That's it!

Debootstrap copies the /etc/passwd so  you can login, but it doesn't copy over the network settings or other servers, so make sure that they are correct before starting a machine with the new root file system.
