I've heard unverified stories of people running Android-x86 in a
chroot under ChromeOS on a Chromebook.
If the above is true and if ChromeOS is indeed Linux, would it be
possible to install a Linux subset under /emul/linux and then chroot
Potentially this would be two chroots, one into /emul/linux, the other
under /emul/linux/android ?
Consider that it is possible to run a complete Debian subset under
Android. Why can't the opposite be true?
