I understand that.  I don't understand why you'd be attempting to
execute any binaries you find on the alternate root.  They can't work.

Right.  So why are you doing that?

That's the broken part.  That should be just:


Otherwise, I don't understand the intent.  The executable things that
come with the system are located under /usr/bin, /sbin, and
/usr/sbin.  Those should always work and always be consistent with the
system libraries and kernel.

Binaries that you find elsewhere may not necessarily work.
